sweet sixteen parties are a big tradition here on long island. as far as I know it's usually girls that have them and my twin nieces are no exception. the type of parties range from renting a night club a la saturday night fever, to the more traditional venue such as your local VFW hall. my nieces opted for the albertson VFW post. their party included dancing with a DJ who played excellent music. dinner was a delicious buffet with cake and ice cream afterwards. the best part of the night was the lighting of the sixteen candles. this is where my nieces honored 16 people in their lives by saying something significant about them and then asking each one to light one of their candles. it was very touching to see how much they care about the people in their lives by listening to what they wrote about each individual.
have you ever been to a sweet sixteen party?
