Que Viva la Quinceanera!!!

Posted by on December 7, 2015

This past weekend we had the pleasure of attending our first Quinceanera!  A Quinceanera is when an Ecuadorian girl turns 15 (15 is “quince” in Spanish).  We went to the Quincenera birthday party for our friend Naomi, who is the daughter of Martita, our friend and babysitter for the kids.  The party was held at the church, Santiago, in the south of Quito, who our friends Henry and Olguita Burbano are the pastors.

It was quite the party!  In addition to having the normal birthday party fanfare of food, cake and lots of balloons.  The Quinceanera birthday party also included a court, an entrance with her dad, the presentation of a bible, high heeled shoes and a promise ring.  I was a ton of fun to be a part as we really enjoyed ourselves!  We were privileged to be a part!
