Prom season in our city in the Philippines happens around February. Schools become alive as junior and senior high school students get all excited about the prom which, in today's highly commercialized world, has become a very expensive school activity.
First the food and the place. It has to be a special place fit to hold a ball for hundreds of students who will come formally dressed in gowns and coats. The cost of the place and the food may already cause parents to squirm.
Then the gown or tuxedo which could be over a couple of thousands. Shoes, accessories like earrings, bracelets, bag, rings, brooch or tiarra may add up to hundreds of bucks.
Some prommers can be nasty and ask for services like spa, hair rebond, facials, manicure and pedicure and the like. These would cost another couple of thousands.
Hair and make-up would run close to a thousand pesos depending on the make-up artist or hair stylist. If you go to the not-so-popular beautician, you may save a few bucks.
In the US, however, and in some parts of the world, the celebration of the JS prom is usually held during mid-May and the complications attached to the party are far from less.
This is an event students look forward to and everybody wants to look extra special. to be chosen as the prom queen is one of the dreams of girls attending the party. Of course, the fairest of them all gets to be crowned "Prom Queen".
