The debutante

In our society, the debut is still an awaited occasion because it is the symbol that the girl has entered adulthood. The debut is usually a grand party in a formal attire. The parents spend for the debut party as a gift to their daughter especially when the daughter enters college with good grades.

The party has rituals or segments like the 18 roses where 18 boys of the debutante’s contemporary will dance with her one by one with an offer of a rose. For the adults, there’s the 18 treasures that are actually their gift to the debutante but in giving there is a matching speech about the birthday celebrant. The finale is the lighting of the candles in the cake that is accompanied by the singing of the birthday song.
