What is Prom?

Prom is a night to remember. It's a summation of all you've accomplished in high school, so it only makes sense that you want it to be perfect. Prom night is when you look your best and have a great time. Unfortunately, that can be extremely stressful.

In my country prom is a bit different of what I've heard it is in the US. In highschool the seniors end school in February (starting their "study break", where they study for the final exams), so the Highschools 2nd graders (that would be me this year) are the oldest (hence the name "old dances", which is how we call our prom). So the 2nd graders perform dances to their parents and the rest of the school, including the seniors. We dress up in ballgowns, and guys in tuxedos. We have usu a lly 2 performances one on the day the seniors leave (always a thursday), after which the students and parents have dinner. The next day we perform to the school and afterwards have a party. This is our version of the prom, I guess. :)

Prom to me is a night where I can dress up like a princess from a fairy tale & have my date be my Prince Charming. Prom is also a night where I lose my voice from screaming when I see my knight in shining armor step out of his chariot :o) I cannot wait for my next ball this spring. I LOVE PROM!

The word prom, comes from the latin word Prominousca which the english then adapted to Promenade which means to do the dance of lovers.

prom is a time for students to get glamorous and have fun amd make wonderful memories.its one of the best nights in ur high years.

The "Prom" contrary to popular belief is not all glitz and glamour, it holds a sacred meaning that has been passed down from generations that have come before. To me the prom is a last ditch effort to enjoy our adolesence before we part ways with friends you are never going to see again and to disentangle ourselves from the things of the past in order to move into the next phase of our adult life. You can also see it as a personal rite of passage.

Prom is a celebration for the juniors and seniors to wish them good luck and farewell! It's also a totally ROCKING PARTY!!

A night that is more than just a dance. Prom is a time to celebrate entering your adulthood. It also the last few memories that you will have in high school and maybe for some of us with friends we will never see again. Prom is something you will share with your kids and something you will always remember and look back on for years to come.

Prom to me is more than just a dance. It is the celebration of entering your adulthood. It also is something fun to look forward to, getting dressed up and just having fun that night. Its a time to spend your last few days of high school (for seniors) to make memories. It's also something that you look back on when your older and something you will always rememeber for years to come.

Prom is like a going away party the junior class gives the seniors. I mean, they will be graduating in about 1 month (depending on where you live and when your prom is depends on the ACTUAL time seniors have left). This is a time where they can dress up and look nice for each other so they will always remember the best about thier frinds (and or enimies!). This will be the last time seniors have to just goof off and be themselves with thier friends.

Prom is a tradition. It is a break from everyday school life and a night to dress up and feel special. It is another memory to hold when you look back 10 years from now. It is the night you hook up with your high-school crush. It's the day your parents let you borrow the car. To some it's one thing and to others it's another. Basically, it is whatever you decide to make it and the only important thing is that you enjoy yourself and cherish it for all your life.

I live in Europe, and prom night in our way is a night from wich students are officialy considdered to be grown-up. We gather around, students, proffesors, firends (not neccesarily from same school), parents(they as well), etc. and have sort of a banquet, with classy dinner, all sort of dances including a waltz wich formally opens the evening, latino dances, modern stuff,... People hold speaches, we joke, share prizes, pick the king and queen. It is very formall, but it gets to be the h appening of a season. AND WE DONT GET LAYED OR EMBARRASED JUST LIKE THAT!!! We ALL have a night to remember IN STYLE!
