  1. I'm not sure either, but this subject may help - try posting to the General Topics board.

    It's a Spanish word and I believe it starts quinc... (Spanish for 15).

        I, for one, am always so grateful when a member of the Spelling Police steps up to correct any errors that I have made.

          I do not normally correct people's spelling but since this was a topic specifically about one word, I simply thought the right spelling might be helpful.

            Your reply was very helpful -- we didn't even know the word, much less how to spell it!

    2. It's quincinera. There's a tilda over the second n.

      1. that sounds spanish. The number 15 is "quince", nada is nothing, doesn't make a whole lot of sense but it's probably an idiom.
