It's Prom Season!!!

This past weekend my wife and I noticed a caravan of limos and freshly detailed cars filled with well dressed teens while we were passing through a neighboring town. We assumed one thing, they were all heading to their prom. We started thinking about the proms that we went to, and we discussed in generalities the many similarities that proms and weddings share.

To me and probably some other people, proms almost seem like rehearsals for future weddings, again I am generalizing. The girls are focused on the dresses, the planning, the coordinating, and probably dozens of other things my male mind can't comprehend. The guys only need to know when and where, hopefully remembering the flowers.

Merrimack High School's prom isn't until June 2, according to their website. In the spirit of the season here are some prom items.

For an interesting break down of the prom and its significance check out this book.

Here are some interesting prom oriented websites. I don't remember these kinds of things for my prom just 11 years ago.
