Homecoming- pointless?

Is homecoming really that exciting? And by homecoming I mean specifically the dance. Yes, I do have a formidable date and plan on going, but I really see absolutely no point for people to get so excited and uptight about a grueling 4 hour dance with minimal snackage and crappy music.

Attempt to change my mind, agree with me, I don't care. I just need actual viewpoints on this! Is it really that great, or just an excuse to dress up and have stuff paid for?

It's a great way to find out who's parents are loaded.

I had and continue to have similar feelings about homecoming. While homecoming is a rite of passage, it surely isn't a major life event. Since you are making arrangements, why not have a good time and enjoy the experience. Dinner and dancing with a nice young lady should be fun and enjoyable.

It is foolish--unless you have the assets--to spend a lot of money on homecoming. Forget the limo (dumb) and focus on the tux, corsage, and dinner. Like high-school class rings and yearbooks--that seem so important at the time--homecoming is okay and too often hyped by advertisers and peer pressure. Eventually, it goes the way of rings and yearbooks and loses meaning.

(IMHO it may be a life event for some kids and will be remembered and treasured--others are more focused on college and more significant life events. And, with due respect, tell your date not to spend a lot of money on a dress).

Nowadays I guess gender considerations aren't important. Please extrapolate my earlier comment to fit your situation. Regret inconvenience.
