On December 4th, the sound of heels clicking on the floors, the sweet smell of perfume, and the growing noise of excited grade twelves dominated the halls of South Delta Secondary School. Tickets in hand, we were greeted with "Are you carrying any alcohol or drugs?" (as if they expected someone to say yes). After we had all been let in, we entered the cafeteria which had been decorated like a winter wonderland. The tables were adorned with tea light candles and mason jars filled with decorative twigs and Christmas ornaments and the walls were plastered with snowflakes and mini lights. But the decorations that certainly took the cake were the gazebo which became a prominent place to get photos taken, and the fake, and real, Christmas trees that lined the back wall. In the first twenty minutes or so, most people were greeting friends and getting photos taken. Only around fifteen people were dancing, as most people had discovered the photo booth and were posing in reindeer antlers, oversized glasses, and bunny ears.
For dinner we had salmon, salad, macaroni and cheese and many other items. After everyone ate, it was back to dancing. For the next two and a half hours, almost no one took a break from dancing (myself included). In fact, most people missed dessert because they were having too good of a time on the dance floor. Near the end of the evening, the DJ had a dance competition. Will Shelling, Rachel Ruecker, Autumn Cawker and Richard Topp danced for fifteen seconds each, and then two competitors, Rachel and Autumn, were eliminated. Will and Richard then competed amongst each other, resulting in a win for Richard and a smashed iPhone screen for Will.
By the end of the night, people were pretty tired and just about every girls feet was in pain from their shoes (heels may look good, but they certainly don't feel good).
The night was over, and people either returned home to sleep before school the next day, or continued to spend time with friends.
