:shock: what!!! i'm not agree with your opinion...sorry to say... however that is only an opinion, nothing wrong with that b'coz that's yours. :wink: As for me, holiday is the important thing in my life time. By going to somewhere else and even at home gathering with my family during holiday can help me to relax my mind an forget all the busy day. In fact, i'm working and at the same time i'm studying at one of the famous university in my country, thus i really need holidays and it doesn't waste my time at all :P

I completely agree that holidays are a waste of time :lol: When I am on holiday I still have to worry about work and then I can't relax worrying about all the things I have to do still :cry: . I think that if work was less stressful then holidays might actually be worthwhile :?

one can not work all the time .as the saying goes : all work and no play make jack a dull boy .I recommend a balence life ----you houl work hard and meanwhile you should have the time for entertainment and relaxing.After all ,we are not born to work till the end .So enjoy the work and the holiday .But take a fine balence .You can make your life more colourful

HM!let me think! as my opinion,"holiday"could be divided into two forms.
one is annual vocation,while the other is fesitvals or Saturday&Sunday.
When I choose the former, which means the wholl office is still running except me ,so it's hard to relax myself as much as I like.And the fact is always just like what I have thought.
So I thinks the holiday is a waste or not lies on your spirit! :?

It's hard to say

Holiday is a good thing sometimes. Because if we have no holiday, what's the meaning of our existing in the world? After a long time work, we need to relax. But , sometimes for students, especially our language study students, holiday is really a bad thing, if we don't touch English for several days we will forget a lot. That's terrible! so, control ourselves, and have a nice holiday as well!

Holidays

Holidays a waste of time?. I don't think holidays are a waste of time because you've got the time to do things you can't do in the year. I don't agree with that. On may holidays I like spend time with my family, friends. I like going to new countries or cities I haven't visited yet ( If I've got money of course).
I think holidays are a great time! :P

I like holiday

Postby thanhhangmpm@yaoo.com » Tue Sep 02, 2003 3:48 am

In my opinion, holiday is nothing more than pleasure, relaxation you will have. Why can holiday be waste of time? what will you do if you have free time?staying at home or playing game, I don't say that it's not good but why don't we go out with our friends, go to anywhere we like, enjoy the fresh air,admire the beauty of nature etc....
And then after a day (or a week, a month) you will immediately feel the differences. You look more healthy, more beautiful, more enthusiasm for your next day. I myself want to go everywhere if I have enough money, I'm saving now for my future tourist plan.
Holiday is wonderful!

Holidays are a Waste of Time

Postby bernicezit@yahoo.com » Thu Sep 04, 2003 9:50 am

Holidays are the most precious time in one's life :) . That means during holidays, you can do a lot of things you are not able to do during working days. I seize the opportunity to travel, to meet friends, :D to relax, and prepare myself for work, to visit my parents or take a course. Although sometimes I miss my friends at work :( , I don't think Holidays are a waste of time.

:roll: i think this is have two face of this topic,
i think the first face is
:twisted: it's good. because after a long time to study, we feel very tired .
And we want to go some where else to change the air,
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 ,

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?
