Celebration ...

Celebration ...
.. spoke with a friend last evening about this photo
.. telling her about the young men, older men all dressed up with a white limo behind them
.. she said it sounded like part of a "quinceanera celebration"
.. uncles, cousins, so many family members in this special day of a young lady
.. she said, "next to a girl's wedding day, this is the most important day in her life.."

"The Quinceañera, Quinceañero, or Quince años ("fifteen years" in English), in Latin American culture, is a coming of age ceremony held on a girl's fifteenth birthday, comparable to a Sweet Sixteen celebration. The term Quinceaños refers to the birthday of the celebrant, and the term 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, the young lady dances with her father."
