The Debut celebration includes units of 18 in its ritual. Eighteen special guests are invited. The Grand Cotillion Dance includes exactly 18 roses. Eighteen candles are typically lit. The original 18 treasure gifts are given by the 18 special guests. There is no rule of thumb as to what each gift should be. Another later addition to the Debut is 18 shots to celebrate the speech.
