In the United States, a prom, short for promenade, is a formal dance held at the end of the years of high school and college, called junior prom and senior prom respectively. In British English such an event would be called a ball, although in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand it is also often called a formal. In Australian schools the terms used are either formal or sometimes as Leaver's Dinner, usually so when the night includes a meal. In Ireland it is known as a debs (an abbreviation of debutante ball). In the U.S. a "formal" is typically a similar dance that is held by a fraternity or sorority affiliated with a certain college or university. In Australia, the term "prom" has also come into sparse usage and in Britain it is becoming widespread, because of US influence. The name is derived from the late ninteenth century practice of a Promenade ball. The end of year tradition stemmed from the Graduation Ball tradition.

Quinceanera Candle

Quinceanera Candle Lighting Ceremony

The tradition of the Candle Lighting Ceremony is one of the most loved traditions for families planning a Quince Celebration. If the Candle Lighting Ceremony is to take place during a mass at church, the Quinceañera may light her parents’ candles using the flame from her own candle. In turn, her parents light the candles of their parents, and so on. In some Latin American countries, the young woman then changes her shoes from flats to heels.

In South Florida, the trend is to hold the Candle Lighting Ceremony during the reception. The Lighting ritual is an opportunity to honor special guests by having them light one of the candles on the cake. As you call up each person, the Quinceañera can recite a dedication they have created for each guest. When the candles have all been lit, everyone sings “Happy Birthday” and the partying continues.

For a twist on this tradition, decorative taper candles can be placed in candleholders around the cake. Each member of the “court” can hold a candle and “make a wish” for the Quinceañera as she blows out each candle.
