The celebration of someones Quinceañera is a big deal to all Spanish people, as it is the mark into womanhood. You usually have a Quincea when you turn 15, which is upcoming for me soon. When I first heard about this from my mother it sounded amazing. You have a big party for yourself, with big dresses, and many presents. But what is really important is the celebration with your family. When you search up where Quinceañera's come from it differs. Some say it comes from conquistadors and some say it comes from the Aztecs.
