Buying A Prom Dress is Serious Business - FashionWindows
Culturally, the prom is an American phenomenon that traces its roots way back to the late 19th century. But school dances are held worldwide, though it might be called a school formal, summer ball, or school socials. So, to paraphrase Shakespeare’s “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet,” we can say that “a prom by any other name will still be one of the biggest events in the high school calendar.” Corollary to that, April to June might be the prom season in the US, but because of its global nature, school dances happen at different months.
