La Quinceanera



Its almost your 15th birthday and your mother asked how do you want it celebrated. At school you learnt that the Aztecs didn't consider a woman human until her 15th birthday at which time she was admitted into tribal society with elaborate ritual. This tradition later became Christianized and is still followed by many Catholic Hispanic families. A young lady makes her debut in a rite of passage known as the quinceañera , celebrating the girl's transition from childhood to adulthood. You select this custom for your 15th birthday which will be one of the most important and memorable events of your life.
