It's day two of the countdown and my favorite thing today is Christmas Break. All breaks are magical, but I think Christmas break is the least flawed. Most breaks are too short to really unwind, either because they are only a few days, or because things are planned for those days, like fixing cars, or cleaning houses. Christmas break may consist of a few household chores, but unless you are a slob, you can't spend the whole time cleaning.
Summer break, though awesome, is a little too long. It's long enough to do something with it, like get a job, which makes it no longer a break. Winter break is short enough, that there really isn't much a person can do with it, but relax.
These two things make Christmas break the best break of all. We can visit family, sit back, relax, laugh, sing, smile, and take a nap, with no worry of deadlines. I do understand that some people have to work, and that sucks. And I'm sorry. But as far as college breaks go, Christmas break is the best one.
