End of May calls for school celebrations all over the island of Cyprus. High school graduates, in particular, are preparing for their final exams, looking forward to adulthood and a promising future career but also to proms soon after exams are over. For most high school graduates it's a special night they've been looking forward to for months beforehand. It seems that proms are also popular amongst elementary school graduates who can't wait to start high school in September.
Proms nowadays have become much more liberal than they were in the past. It's not really important to have a date or to be asked by the "perfect guy". More and more girls are choosing their own dates for the prom and more and more boys are going with a group of friends. Yet prom is still the main social event of high school graduates, but it is also a time for fun and the creation of memories for everyone to enjoy.
What was your prom like?
