This event originated back in the United States, the high school prom is usually the first formal event for young people. The first proms were held in the 1920s, and by the 1930s, proms were common across America. The prom was a modest, home-grown event in the school gym and would often be decorated with paper streamers. Teenagers would be well dressed; the boys wore a jacket and tie and the girls would wear their Sunday dress. After the 1960s and also the 1980s, the high school prom had become a serious exercise in many areas with boys renting expensive tuxedos and girls in designer gowns. Stretch limousines would be hired for the teenagers to arrive at the prom.
