Well finally! The time of joy & happiness is here and present, the time when school releases their students for 1 ½ weeks after exams for them to welcome & enjoy their family & friends, good ‘ol Christmas/winter break. Personally, this is my favorite time of year, which supports the quote “save the best for last!” Of course it’s awesome to just go home and chill, but when you think about it, there is so much you can fit into these 8 days.

Go to the movies or visit your family in Nebraska (EVERYONE has family in Nebraska).

But whatever you believe if you take it for granted it might pass you by. For those who don’t believe in Christmas or just don’t recognize it, enjoy the winter. Enjoy your time off of school & you can still do a lot of activities this article suggests. Lastly, although I know this is a hackneyed (hackneyed means ‘overused’) saying: This time of year isn’t all about material things...
