Prom Crosses The Pond

Here’s a switch: there’s an American teen invasion in Britain. High schoolers in the U.K. who see movies like Napoleon Dynamite and Mean Girls want proms of their very own. Over the past few years Hummer limos, tuxedo rentals, and candy-colored ball gowns have been selling/renting like hot cakes across the country. Really, of all our American traditions — baseball, putting cheese on everything, driving on the right side of the road — why, oh why, did they pick this one? To the senior class of the U.K., let The Frisky save you $1000 bucks and some emotional scarring — forget the frills, kids. Stay home, buy a six-pack, crank up the radio, and invite your date over. The best things about prom night are free. [Wall Street Journal]
