Prom in the USA

Crossing the threshold into adulthood, even if it’s only for one night, prom represents the single rite of passage nearly all American teenagers share. Prom is a night filled with promise of new maturity, possible romance, and ultimately perfection. Teens shell out hundreds of dollars on tuxes, dresses, tickets, hair and limos to ensure prom night is nothing short of a fairy tale. Unfortunately, prom catastrophes are not uncommon, and often times this fairy tale night ends long before the clock strikes twelve.
