Prom is anything you want it to be; it's what YOU make it. It can be fun, exciting, fashionable, a party, anything. Prom is a celebration of some of the freedom seniors will receive once out of highschool, and (since it's usually thrown by the juniors) it's also a coming of age and final send off for the seniors...you could call it the "pre-party" before graduation and the "after-parties." It's just one more phase of growing up that teens can choose to be a part of.

I think that prom is something everybody waits for. The night to remember. The night that anything can happen. It can be the night when people party, fall in love, or just have fun, and dance the night away.I would say that prom for me would be the night when I get the chance to show everybody that I can have fun too. And it's the night every girls dream about.

prom derived from the french word promenade is a night when girls went on long strolls with a date while everyone basically watched. today it is for some people the night when your parents let you stay of late and you can act like a princess or celebrity,limos,expensive rides.fun friends, and maybe an after party.

at the beginning of the year,my friend asked wether i am going to the prom.I have no idea what a prom is...and i thought it was just a party(formal),spend a lot of money on the attire,dance and that's all.I'm not sure wether it is worth it but i made my decision of going to my school prom night.My idea is to spend the whole night with my gang of friends which we most probably will not be in the same college.It's quite saddening that I have to leave my school and my friends as well.I decided to treassure that night,that precious moment in my high school.Yea,i read others opinion about prom.I think that will b a big day for me(though i have to spend a lot)....=)

Yeah to me prom is just a dance that I get a change to wear a really fancy dress lol. Yeah isn't really a HUGE big thing to me, I just want to go to say that I went. I more then likely will go with my friends *not with a date* I think it's like more of a get-together type deal, just really formal. I guess there's really not a real meaning to prom, it's more on the lines of what you see it as ya know....yeah well later.

FYI, "prom" is short for the French word "promenade" which means "stroll" (as in a walk).
prom is a night where every senior can spend there last night with really close friends they may not see later on in the future. it should be a special night and enjoyable.

Prom is a twice in a lifetime experience. I'm going to be a junior this year and prom is the one thing I'm actually looking forward to. You only have this year and next so make it memorable. Prom is about being with friends, having fun, maybe doing something you've never done before. Or it could be about being with the one you love, making a long time relationship even more special, maybe doing something you've never done before. But whatever you do...make sure you never forget it!

In Ireland we dont have proms. The Irish equivilant of the american prom is our debs (debútaunte) night. This is our formal enterance into society as an adult and it is also to celebrate your finishing of Secondary School (High School). Your debs is after your Leaving Certificate State Exams when you are around 18 years old. Is that the same idea as the prom?

Prom is a night that you can spend with your special person or a friend, dancing and having a good time. Here in our town it seems like the "walk-ins" are the most important. It is like its all about the dress. Its wonderful. You have to be a junior or a senior unless you get asked by someone of that grade level.
