The Mis Quince celebration is a very important event in the life of many young Hispanic women. It marks the fifteenth birthday of these women, much like the sweet sixteenth birthday is celebrated in many households as a large family and friends affair. The Mis Quince is celebrated widely in Hispanic countries such as Mexico and several South American countries. The name Mis Quince comes from the Spanish word, Quinceanera, which means fifteen. A fitting name for a celebration that takes place on the fifteenth birthday.
Mis Quince also contains many religious elements, similar in a way to the Bat Mitzvah or Bar Mitzvah party held for thirteen year olds in Judaism holds religious elements. Before the party all the guests attend a service at church where the pastor speaks about the moral responsibility of growing up, the young woman celebrating her birthday gets to stand up and speak about her hopes for the future and even her parents or some family members may stand up to speak about the young woman and the happiness they felt watching her grow up. After the service everyone heads over to the party with lots of food, a first dance on the dance floor and games.
There can be many, many months involved in preparing for a young woman’s Mis Quince party. Socially it has to be a big deal. Families have been known to save up money for years just to have a big Mis Quince celebration. It’s not out of the realm of the unbelievable for a Mis Quince celebration to have catered food, limousines, live bands, a dance hall, and photo sessions for the guests and even a beautiful white or lavender gown for the guest of honor. The young woman celebrating her birthday will often also have a bouquet of pretty flowers.
