Do you know the real reason why merong JS PROM? Click here!
« on: April 15, 2007, 11:44:11 am »
Everyone's so psyched about this formal event every year. We all worry about our dresses, our dates and our after-prom gimmicks. It's a tradition already, and through the years it has become this superficial, glamorous, magastos event na lang.

I guess it's about time our generation learns the deeper meaning and objective of proms.

As a member of the prom committee, we recently had a meeting with the parents who will help us organize our prom. One mom pointed out that during their time, this was the definition of prom: "A formal hand-over ceremony of the Seniors' responsibilities with the Juniors accepting it."

One part of the program is an actual turnover ceremony, wherein a Senior representative hands over a little symbolism (like a candle) to a Junior representative. That candle symbolizes the responsibility cos they will be the eldest in the school next year. They have to be the role models. If the Seniors started something (like a usual event for a cause), the Juniors are given the chance to continue it next year. That's why it has to be a JS prom, meaning the event should be attended by both batches.

If you think I made sense, why don't you suggest this to the people who organize your prom? Prom used to be a meaningful tradition, with a deep reason behind all the formality and glamour.

What do you think?

Halla! Ganun pala yun. Kaya naman pala noong prom namin, ang haba ng ceremony, ang daming ek-ek. Kumanta pa kami, tas umakyat ng stage para mag-exchange ng candles etc. Ang taas taas pa ng heels ko noon (4inches), eh mantakin niyo, isang oras yata kami nakatayo. Ang sakit talaga!! Lagi ko pang sinasabi noong practice namin "Bakit pa kasi may ganyan-ganyan eh sasayaw lang tayo!" haha.....  :D

In our case, hiwalay ang prom sa turnover ceremony. And yes ^ susing malaki din binibigay. Hahaha! Pero its solemn naman. :|
I gave you blood, blood, gallons of the stuff.
I gave you all that you can drink and it has never been enough.
I gave you blood, blood, blood.
I'm the kind of human wreckage that you love.

Oh...Yun pala yun. So prom na rin yung Dance Night namin. Kasi may ganoon din eh. Binigay na nung dating President ng Council namin yung responsibility niya sa ka-eelect lang na President. Wooh.
