A Taste of Christmas Break

January 25, 2017

            Christmas break is a time for students to rest from their day-to-day routine, travel home, and catch up with friends and family. While some prefer to sit back and relax, others will take the time to travel around. Since the break is about a month long it is even a good time for many to work a part-time job! Whatever it may be, Christmas break is a great way to reflect on the past semester and prepare for the semester to come.

            During Christmas break, I was able to find rest from my normal routine, catch up with my family and friends, and even enjoy the company of cousins visiting from Italy. If there is one thing many people know about me, it is the love I have for my family! I was so thankful that I was able to be back home in New York to spend time with my cousins and gather together with them for the Holidays. We enjoyed a fun day of exploring in New York City, admiring all the beautiful skyscrapers and sights that the city has to offer.

            Christmas break is always a great way for me to get rejuvenated as I begin a new semester. Once January comes around, many students will agree that they are ready to get back into their familiar routine at school. The time I get to spend at home is always what I need as it offers me time to be still, reflect on what God has been teaching me, and set new goals for the upcoming year.
