After the stressful week of exams, many students look forward to the long winter break where a stress-free couple of weeks can be enjoyed.
Given that winter break is set during the holidays some people have mixed feelings about it. Some people enjoy it more because of the holidays, but some people don’t love the holidays as much and simply enjoy it because it is a time of no school.
“Winter break has always felt amazing to me and brings me joy in my soul. Since New Year’s Day and Christmas Day is so close to each other it fills the air with happiness and joy,” junior, Khalil Mc Ewan said.
Many peoples’ day changes during winter break compared to how it is during school. Many students have work or simply just spend the day relaxing.
“I wake up around 9 A.M. and begin with breakfast. Then work out with my girlfriend of 3 years. After my workout, I go about my day. Sometimes I relax and sometimes I have to go to work,” Mc Ewan said.
Since winter break is during the holiday season many students get prepared for yearly holiday traditions. Some people don’t have any traditions but some people do, which are looked forward to every year.
“My personal tradition I like to do when winter break comes around is eating ten things blue and sleeping in for an entire day. When I was twelve my friend and I had a deal to eat ten things blue and whoever did it got to get candy. I have gotten candy from him four times throughout our friendship,” Mc Ewan said.
For many people winter break is a favorite because it is the longest or because it is during the holidays. However, some people might think that it is too long and get excited to return back to school.
“Yes, winter break is my favorite because I absolutely adore the weather and the joy that comes with the break,” Mc Ewan said.
