A young Latina girl’s Quinceañera is a coming-of-age celebration marking the day she turns 15 and becomes a young woman. This tradition dates back to the Aztecs and continues today throughout the Latin American culture. Friends and family are invited to a party involving food and dance. Of course the guest of honor is the star of the show. Often there is a toast or formal entry when the birthday girl arrives in a beautiful gown. Each Latin country adds their own traditions, and Hallmark has a few Quinceañera ideas to help you plan or celebrate.
