I always loved Homecoming in high school. The time of year. The school spirit in the air. Everyone buying their Homecoming outfits, scrambling for a date, and wondering who would be named Homecoming Queen.
Every school does it differently. Some have queens and princesses. Others have a king and queen.
My school had attendants and the queen. The attendants each representated one of the high school classes and the queen came from the senior class.
Some school have their ceremony on the football field during the game, with either an escort by the winner's father or her boyfriend.
Some even have the football players escort the court.
There are banners, crowns, maybe a ceptor or two, but always a big, bubbly radiant smile from the winner.
Face it, it's the pinnacle of a high school career...getting the rhinestone crown placed on your head! How that must feel!
But, it's almost as fun to see a good friend or a friendly person win the title and share in her joy.
And imagine the smile on my face this morning when I received my shipment from Amazon.com with our fabulous Stephanie Hale's debut, REVENGE OF THE HOMECOMING QUEEN! I can't wait for the weekend to start so I can delve into this book!
Happy Homecoming week to all!
