A sweet sixteen is a coming of age party celebrating a teenager's 16th birthday , mainly celebrated in the United States and Canada. While some families throw large, lavish celebrations, others choose to celebrate the birthday as if it were a normal occurrence. This event can be formal, casual, or semi-formal. While traditionally it is common that sweet sixteens are mostly celebrated by girls, they can also be celebrated by boys, who tend to celebrate with their friends on an informal basis. Even if it is a small party, the main purpose of the party is to celebrate the person becoming "older" and entering a different stage of their life. In countries such as the UK, Australia and New Zealand, the 16th birthday is eclipsed by a teenager's 18th birthday celebration, the age at which young people become adults and are allowed to vote and legally purchase alcohol. Alternative sweet sixteen celebrations in the United States can include a religious or church ceremony also, like a Mass or a blessing at church. For example, the girl may go to the church for the religious ceremony and, then, while in the party, choose to have the sixteen-candle ceremony. The religious ceremony comes from the Hispanic tradition, while the sixteen candles ceremony comes from the American tradition.

Whether to include a candle lighting ceremony in your celebration or not is a personal choice. However, one of the most important aspects of a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is celebrating with family and friends. A candle-lighting ceremony is a wonderful way for the Bar Mitzvah boy or Bat Mitzvah girl to recognize and honor the important people in their lives.
Remember: These are just recommendations… if you know what songs Grandma likes, what song makes auntie Bracha laugh or cry , or what boy-band your cousin Rachel was addicted to as a teenager Nick from Backstreet Boys! I Love You! Imagine being called to light a candle, with an awful Justin Bieber song playing in the background…. It might not seem like a big deal.
