My husband’s family usually meets at his grandmother’s house and we eat the food that she has prepared for us. This is her old family tradition which includes turkey, ham, dressing, vegetables, green bean casserole, and desserts; she says that she will always carry it on.

The celebration took place at a banquet hall that was elaborately decorated like you would find at a wedding reception. I was told by my host however, that earlier in the morning of the same day the young girl( la Quinceanera) had gone to church with her parents, god parents and some family members for the religious aspect of the celebration where the celebrant was prayed for and officially declared a woman. Upon arrival, my first impression was that of utter amazement as I wondered why a fifteenth birthday party would call for such an elaborate celebration with a life band, a Dj, and a Mariachi. By the time guest were fully seated, the Dj took to the center of the hall to welcome guest on behalf of the la Quinceanera and her family.

Our family begins with getting a tree, decorating, baking cookies, opening our gifts we got from Santa Claus, and then finally have Christmas dinner.

We were living in Louisiana; it was my favorite out of all the other states we had lived in.
