I am trying to figure something out here and I need input.
There are lots of movies where the characters refer to their Senior Prom as "going to Prom."
The other night Lauren and I were watching TV and one of the people on the show said something about "going to prom".
Lauren turned to me and asked, "Why do people say going to Prom? We always referred to it as going to THE Prom."
I agreed. We say The Prom.
Now I am not sure if saying going to The Prom is a regional phrase, like "down the shore" is a regional thing instead of "going to the beach".
How do you say it? Prom or the Prom?
