The word ‘holiday’ is very pleasing to our ears. We are very glad when we get holidays like the summer vacation and the Puja vacation give us more Pleasure. Object of holidays -We work hard during the working days of the school. Our brain is taxed. It requries some rest after deep studies. Hence we get long holidays for rest. But we should not waste our time in idleness. It is true that we are not to follow the dull routine of the school. But we must spend the vacation profitably.
Healthy exercise and games
During holidays we can take a long walk in the open air every day in the morning or in the evening. This will make our mind cheerful. It improves our health also. We can row, ride or play some good games. Some spend their time in playing at cards only. This is very bad. It makes us idle. We may play at cards, ludo, etc., only when we cannot go out on account of rain.
Visiting new places
During holidays we can visit new places. It will increase our knowledge and experience. The natural scenery of those places will give us joy. We can also pay visits to our friends and relatives during holiday.
We must enjoy holidays fully. But we should not forget our books. If we do not touch our books, we shall forget everything. It will then be difficult for us to prepare our old lessons. Hence we should revise them during holidays. But we need not read much we may also read story books and books of travel. We shall find interest in them. They will increase our knowledge and at the same time give us pleasure and encourage us to travel.
We can devote some time to social service. We can teach those who are illiterate. This will help the progress of the country.
If we spend the vacation in this way, it will do good to our body and mind. It will restore our energies and fit us for work again. Thus after spending the cacation wisely we shall again be able to work hard with a cheerful mind.
