White girls now having quinceaneras
http://www.economist.com/news/united-sta...ture-power

Quote:The coming-out balls of the Spanish aristocracy are said to explain the birthday girl’s first waltz with her father—or elder brother, in these days of divorce. From Puerto Rico comes the symbolic moment when that same papi, sweltering in his tuxedo and trying to forget the evening’s price-tag, kneels to change his daughter’s flat shoes for high heels.
...
In America, quinceañeras are all about the girl and her personality, says Angie Durán, a cake-maker. Her daughter, Alexandra Solis, duly shocked older relatives with a Halloween-themed party last year, involving a spider-encrusted cake topped with a purple skull.

The attention whoring starts ever younger these days.

RE: White girls now having quinceaneras
I was going to jump in with my usual "what about white Spaniards/Latin Americans" spiel...however considering this is primarily a Mexican thing...I'll hold back.

The OP says "White girls now having quinceaneras" which makes no sense since quinceaneras are a cultural (sometimes more religious based) tradition and not based on skin color. A similar type of tradition for boys in America could be a bar mitzvah, or bat mitzvah for girls.

One girl is jealous of her Latin classmates=All Anglo-American girls are now having quinceaneras? The article is ludicrous

RE: White girls now having quinceaneras
Here we have our version of that, Fiesta de Quince (Fifteem Party), but while expensive, is in no way similar to the mexican party. Here is more about a family reunion celebrating the coming of age of a women.
Saly, now the trend among these brats is to spend the money in a group trip to Disney/Cancun/etc than in the party itself.

This one is also called "La Quinceañera Doble." by an Atlantic writer who winked at me on match...


Single People Should Get to Have Weddings, Too
http://www.theatlantic.com/sexes/archive...oo/265689/


"When I approached 30 as a single woman, I decided to host a quinceañera-themed party in San Antonio, which I aptly titled "La Quinceañera Doble." My parents, not having subsidized a wedding, offered to cover some of the expenses, and friends flew in from around the country. Although I felt a tad silly for organizing a destination birthday, the upshot was that my parents and I covered nearly all of the costs (which were nominal compared to a wedding), and no one suffered the indignity of having to wear matching chiffon gowns."

Yup. The article is paper-thin. Which, quite frankly, is what we should expect from the Economist these days.

All it says is: "The custom is spreading. One of those polled, Eric Silva, says that more than a dozen Anglo, black and Indian-American families have asked for a quinceañera rather than a more typically American Sweet Sixteen party in the past two years—though Anglos don’t spend very much, he sniffs."

Okay, but how many party planners were polled and how large is their normal Latin customer base? More than a dozen white, black, and Indian families? Is that a significant fraction of all families holding quinceañeras in San Antonio?

Maybe someone has better evidence of white chicks starting to throw quinceañeras but this article doesn't provide it.

A bat mitzvah is a feminist creation. It wasn't part of original Judaism in the form it is. I believe there was only Bar Mitzvahs before.
