As the semester comes to an end, aside from thinking about finals, all anyone can think about is going home for winter break. There are so many aspects of break students look forward to, here’s some to name a few:
1. No school
Thanks to the Holidays, students get a few weeks off. We look forward to this break from the minute Thanksgiving Break ends. Not only do we get time off from school, but we also get holiday festivities to make it better!
2. Decorating the house
Putting up a wreath, lights, and of course, the tree, is the best way to add holiday vibes to your house. Everyone looks forward to decorating, and the streets look so pretty once everyone’s lights are up! You’ll never want to take them down.
No matter how old you get, everyone looks forward to "Frosty the Snowman," "A Charlie Brown Christmas," "The Polar Express," and "Elf." Whether old or new, each movie is perfect to watch with family and friends while sipping hot chocolate.
4. Shopping for holiday gifts
Whether it’s for your siblings, parents, friends, best friends, Secret Santa, or yourself, nothing makes you equally happy and stressed as walking into a crowded mall with Christmas music playing in the background. You wait in long lines just to buy that perfect gift for everyone, but it’s all worth it in the end.
As great as it is to buy presents, getting presents is so much fun. Running downstairs on Christmas morning is a feeling we’ve all experienced. Who doesn’t love presents?
7. Holiday Food
You have a picture in your head when you read this. Gingerbread men, cookies of snowmen and Christmas trees, cupcakes with red and green frosting, peppermint bark- the works. Whatever your favorite is, you know you wait all year to be able to eat your favorite holiday food again in December.
8. Holiday Events
Driving down beautifully lit streets, going to Christmas lightings, and Winter Wonderland are the most exciting way to experience holiday spirits. Everyone is so happy as they listen to holiday music, take pictures with Santa, and eat some good food.
9. Being with your Family and Friends
It’s not the holidays without your friends and family. Whether you travel across the country or stay right at home, you won’t miss being with your loved ones this break.
