What is a Quince, and what does it celebrate

Originally from Mexico, the Quinceañera is a coming-of-age celebration for girls that marks their 15th birthday. In Mexico, this occasion is also called a fiesta de quince años or simply quince. The celebration traditionally begins with a mass, followed by a party where the birthday girl wears a special dress and is presented with gifts. In addition, thay often include music, dancing, food, and cake. The festivities may also feature family and friends sharing memories or giving advice to the birthday girl. While the Quinceañera has evolved over time, it remains an important rite of passage for many Hispanic girls and their families.
