My sister's Quinceanera Crown

When my sister turned 15 she had a birthday party also known as a quinceanera. A quinceanera is a party that is thrown for a Hispanic girl when they turn 15. The main purpose of this is to celebrate a girl become a young woman. This crown is an object that most Hispanic females get when they turn 15. A quinceanera crown represents her superior morality. Sometimes they also get rings and this ring represents their bond with God. It isn’t a very rare thing to see or to hear someone on your street practicing the dances in their backyards or if you hear music and see a group of people dancing and the dancing looks like ballroom dancing. If you have or ever will go to a quinceanera and see the young lady that is being celebrated will end up getting crowned and when they got to dance they will most likely get high heels and put them on. They may also sometimes get multiple dress changes throughout the party. This tradition is a very common thing from several generations but it is rare to see a male as the main person being celebrated in a quinceanera. The tradition of getting crowned in a quinceanera will happen by the mom, the mother of the young lady is the person who will crown their daughter. After getting crowned you will then see the “princess” get her last doll.
