Vacations - why I like them and why I don't like them

Editor's Rating

People often go out on a holiday in the vacations. We get vacations during important festivals like Diwali and Christmas. We also get summer vacations.

Sometimes I think I don’t like vacations and sometimes I think that I like vacations. I don’t like vacations because I miss my school friends, and if I do not go anywhere out I get bored in the house. I like vacations because we go out and have fun. Sometimes we go to meet our grandparents. Vacations give me much-needed free time to learn new things like music and dance. During vacations we don’t have to take on pressure for school studies. I can also pursue my hobby for which I don’t get time during my school days. I like vacations because many nice movies for children are released and it is fun watching them. I liked my this year’s summer vacation as I had gone to my grandparents’ house. My cousins also live there. They have two dogs with them. I had lots of fun over there. I could play as much as I wanted to without a glance at the clock. In the evening we could see a beautiful sight - yellow, orange and red colours across the sky with a golden glow. We never had a dull moment.

If one does not plan his days during the vacations then the vacation can be quite boring and a wasteful experience.
