No I don't think that holidays are a waste time. They are useful in one's life. You can relax can travel can learn a lot of things during your holidays. You can relax your mind after a long period of work or study. And this way you can feel yorself more energic and full of force to go on at your daily life.
Without them all the people will be bored, tired.
So let's vote for THE HOLIDAYS.
Let's the holidays be longer in uor life.
Bye Eliana

[color=violet][/color] : :lol:
In my opinion'I think after we work hard or concentrate on doing something for a long time we should have a break then we can relax and have our brains rest for a while. It is good for your health also. It is like we try to maintain all our body parts so we can effecienly use them longer. Ater I have a holiday and then come back to work. I feel like a robot which just get a new recharge battery. I feel great and do enjoy working and dealing with people. [b][/b]

I think holiday is not waste of time
Because they help us widden our knowlege
not only that but also help us more and more active in many social life . Help us widden the way of our looking.I think people all of the world should take more tour to as much place as possiple
And the important thing is that travelling is easy way help many company increase there benefit.
HElp country improve and earn money .
:roll:
I used to read on my book about holiday nowaday.
they said that:
" Most people all of the world enjoy traveling
Many country also make a great effort to encorage the tourism ."

it all depends

Postby season_jone@yahoo.com.cn » Sun Nov 09, 2003 9:36 am

i think it all depends on the situation u r in.just take myself as an example,when i'm in work ,i'm so eager for a holiday cause my work is tirig,i even haven't any time to have a break in the 8 hours,i need a holiday to have myself fully relaxed,i t's a need deeply from my body and mind!
but when i came back to the college to continue my graduate course,i suddenly have enough time tospend: read or entertainment etc.especially this semeter,i have 1 year to complete my article,1 year!without lessons without homework,without anybody's forcement,everyday is a holiday!but,things wasn't so nice as it looks,cause if u haven't enough business to enrich your life ,then a holiday will be a waste of life!even every day is a waste of your life!

Holidays a waste of time?

Postby kirk » Sun Nov 23, 2003 7:50 pm

I think holidays are not waste of time, beacuse those days you share with your family or friends. However, I think that holidays are waste of money, because when we give a gift, moslikely that such gift would not feet the other person's taste or appeal. But, it is the local economy the real winner, because during this season, which is the largest and profitable of all seasons, most business and local economies get back some money that has been lost during prior seasons.
But, what about those less fortune individuals that do not have the money to buy gifts for their family or friends? So, is holidays for everyone or just for some people? Does holidays make happy or sad to people?

To have a fresh air,
if we thin travel is waste of time so why do many country are opening their,travelism,
Example in Vietnam. we are opening the travelism, as viettravel. and attracted many tourism. come here and now my country is proving ,
if travel is waste of time so no want will come to my country and our economy will descrease.

:( the other side of this topic is if we just travel too much so our brain will not open and it made our thinking lost. so and then we are not inteligent anymore,. travel made us lazy in thinking ,

Holidays it is a waste of time

Postby Olga » Mon Dec 01, 2003 9:44 am

No, I am not agree with this statement. There are different reasons why a person needs holiday. First of all, it is a good opportunity to change the athmosphere. The second reason is that while being on holiday you can miss somebody, with whom you were bored to death. You get new emptions, forces for a future life.

holiday

Postby harachi » Thu Dec 04, 2003 8:38 am

How can we say : holiday is a wast of time ?,
To me it is the happiest day in a year, it is the time when I meet my friends, chit-chat, laugh and laugh all the time, eat my favourite food and read what I am interested. I mean I do all the things.

To me I think holiday is fantastic. Be happy with your holiday w/o worrying.

Be happy.

You are a bit selfish person! Now you think only about yourself! But think about children and teenagers also. Holidays are everything for them. They study hard for so long and then they have some time to rest and have fun. They are not grown up enough only to think about there problems. Remember yourself at that age and remember your waiting for holidays... :roll: :wink:

Postby sanhong3 » Wed Dec 24, 2003 4:18 am

i don not think so.I think we can benefit a lot from the holiday.In the first place,it can help us know and understand other cultures and people.Through it,we can always keep pace with the times. In the second place,we can relax ourselves in the process of holiday. Nowadays,with the society becoming more and more competitive

holiday is waste of time

Postby mannu201 » Wed Dec 24, 2003 7:13 am

No, as per me holiday is not wasting of time becasue if you work hard for a day, for a month and for a year then you will be needed some time for taking a rest and enjoy yourself and your family.

But in some cases it is wastage of time if you go frequently on holiday then it would be waste of time along with money.

I remember once in our English class, we played a game. We, divided into 3 groups, were given 3 same card with the same situation: a man with a business failure and then it gave 3 ways to choose. Then depend on the answer we were given the next card. And you know, all the ways didn't work except the way of going to the beach and relax, which led us to a new chance.

So sometimes, holiday gives you more than a relaxing time :D

No one agrees holidays are a waste of time.As for me, hard working people deserve holidays though they may be short and it is really a waste of time for lazy people who only want to enjoy life but not work hard.
