Imagine sleeping in, playing with new Christmas gifts, hanging out with friends, and spending time with family for two weeks. Now take this well deserved break from the school year, and slice a third of it away.

This year Christmas break will be 9 days long, not counting weekends. Students work hard all semester, using the future happiness of Christmas break as motivation to keep going. Everyone grew up with a wonderful 2 week long break in the middle of the year. People grow accustomed to this break, setting a standard for all schools. No matter what state, Christmas is a time to travel to see family, friends, etc. All schools know that families want to get together and sometimes that means traveling. Not only is Christmas break time off from school, it is also time allowed for families to spend time with each other. This year’s break is shorter than ever before. Nobody can be sure for the reasons for this. Is it a punishment? Students rack their brains, trying to figure what went wrong. The community feels cheated out of the extra 3 or 4 days. That time could be spent with family, friends, or well deserved relaxation, but instead will now be time spent at school.
