What is a Quinceañera?

Every ethnicity and some religions seems to have its own celebrations when a child turns a certain age.  For most “Americans” 16 and 21 are always celebrated with big parties because 16 is when you can start to drive, and 21, well, we all know what that means.  In Jewish law boys and girls also have bat mitzvahs and bar mitzvahs when they turn ages 12 and 13.  Spanish people also have a coming of age celebration as well, called a Quinceañera.  This happens when a girl turns 15 traditionally, but for Spanish people in the United States this means that a girl has turned 15 years old.  It used to be many years ago that both males and females celebrated a Quinceañera – it was a rites of passage.  This is a celebration that works differently for both boys and girls and these days in modern times it tends to be more for young woman than young men.
