The Quinceañera or Quince años celebration is a coming of age ceremony held on a girl's fifteenth birthday. It is comparable to a Sweet Sixteen celebration, but at 15 instead of 16. The term Quinceaños means fifteen years, and Quinceañera refers to the celebrant herself.
Like many other coming-of-age ceremonies, the Quinceaños is associated with the Quinceañera "becoming a lady". During the celebration, it is costumary for the young lady to dance with her father.
Usually a big party is held to celebrate the occasion, with family and friends being invited to attend.
