What kind of party is it ? Thanks for your ansmers.
and... happy new year everybody. Vict.
May I say Vic for Victorine? I'd like to say prom for promotion and for promenade as well. The word prom is somehow multi-meaning (a word of my own copied from multi-tasking).
Wealthy people leaving high-shool in USA and Canada, college in UK, use to landmark their leaving at the end of last year by having a prom. It's a party starting like a "promenade", it is the ceremonious opening of a ball by a formal march of the guests dressed in tuxedos and high-end attire. Students think that way they are entering the high-class society. It's sometimes true.
My mother who is British told me she had never taken part to such snobbish event.
Thanks a lot Sandy for cleaaring up the meaning of "Prom".
