Winter break is finally here and there are 11 days of it, so what are people going to do for those 11 days? Someone has to get bored eventually.
Some people don’t have much planned for the whole winter break. For example, sophomore Danielle Paules doesn’t really have much going on for the holidays.
“I like to spend time with my family and drink hot chocolate, but other than that I don’t have much planned for winter break,” Paules said.
So what are some things around here that get people into the holiday mood? Christmas in Hershey, where people go to experience the rides and witness over 4 million twinkling lights in Hershey Park.
If you want to stay in your car, you can drive through the Hershey Sweet Lights Display. “It’s a wonderful, sparkling journey driving through the lights,” Sophomore Tori Clark said about the lights display, “ My family and I really enjoyed it.”
There is also Christmas Magic in York at Rocky Ridge. It’s a half-mile trail displaying more than 600,000 lights and has also has been named one of the top 13 events in York county.
There are a lot of things that you can do over this break, such as take a walk around and breathe in the crisp, jolly air.
Another classic winter-time activity is to watch a seasonal movie. There are tons of holiday movies out there such as “Elf”, “A Christmas Story”, and even “The Polar Express”. Drink some hot cocoa and spend time with the people who mean the most.
“I love waking up on Christmas morning and opening the presents under my tree,” Freshman Nevaeh Dehoff said. “I love being with my loved ones and baking tons of food with my mom.”
Be sure to not only spend time with family and friends over break, but also find some time for yourself where you can relax. Don’t let the pressures of school become too overwhelming, and have a happy holiday.
