What To Do Over Christmas Break


Christmas time is here. It is a time to spend time with your loved one and share the spirit of  Christmas. It also means winter break! A time of no school and pure fun. Even fun can get boring during this holiday season so here’s a list of ideas that can help get you out of your despair and lack of purpose. The best ways to spend your winter break are to:

1. Do your homework!

Before doing anything else, make sure to do your homework. You don’t want to be the type of person to leave things toward the of the break and not do your best work. Ensure that all work for the New Year is completed so you can later enjoy the other fun activities. 

2. Watch some movies

Another great thing to do during Christmas break is to watch some movies or binge some shows. Given the Christmas spirit in the air, you may want to watch a Christmas movie with your family, like The Grinch or Home Alone, or watch something completely different and of your choosing. Watch to your desire and maybe get some hot cocoa while you’re at it. 

3. Play some games

Winter break is the best time to play games (after homework of course). It can range from board games like chess or checkers to video games like Fortnite or Minecraft. Play online with friends, and your family, or play solo. 

4. Spend time with your loving family

Though we may not like our family sometimes, it’s important to remember they are the only people who will stay with us in this life. It’s important to give them attention once in a while whether an annoying little brother or your loving mother. Christmas break is fun but doesn’t last forever so spend your time wisely. 

5. Sleep

 Now that school is paused, make up some lost time by catching up on some Zzzs. It’s important to sleep a full 8 hours and even more if haven’t been getting enough sleep. Just rest and relax!

Overall, Christmas break is a time to relax, lay back, and enjoy the holiday season. Don’t stress what you have to do this break too much. Enjoy the way you want to this Holiday Season. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
