Do the part of the things.

you’ve got something wrong. I don’t speak about the different necessity of earning of poor and rich people. I refer to the topic “Holidays is waste of time”.

Sure I agree, if you need every cent you can get, you won’t waste any idea about holidays. But as I said - that isn’t the main topic here.

Good morning from
SpinArgel :-)


I agree that not everyone can afford holidays and you have to weigh that up very heavily when chosing a destination or a style of holiday break. We have a family and funds are short. A couple of years ago we bought a small tent and a few camping items (sleeping bags, cooking utensils). Now the best escape is for a couple of days anywhere! Its great fun and you get to spend quality time together as a family.

However, if I was a wealthy person I must admit I think I would love to travel overseas and visit all the wonderful places. But as I said that takes alot of money.

But what a dream!!!!! 8) :wink:

I don't agree with you at all holidays are days for resting and getting rid of stress that we face at work at school and don't tell that you don't need to rest after a long time of studying and doing exams ,i spend holidays reading books to get more information beside those we recieve from school books aperson should not limit his mind on information he she gets from school books especially if the information or the books are very old so this information are not up to date :x

I disagree and you r not right dear ..
The holiday created to satisfied from the school tiredness ..
although the holiday is boring but not as boring as school .. You can do what ever u want with out obligations .. and If there is no holidays ,, you couldn't continue studying at school ,, you will do the worse .. because some fun is very important to refresh our memories ..
The holiday time is very short comparison with school time ( 3 months in front of 9 months ) ..
Most people if aren't all like holidays more than school ..
But finally we must love school too :wink: .

Sorry but in the working world you are lucky to get four weeks a year leave. Take it from me the memory has as many difficulties in the work place as it does in school.

Why does everyone assume that we are talking about holidays from school here. People that work in jobs have holidays too!

Oh sorry hahaha , but when I hear the word " holiday " my thought goes to school directly .. I don'y know why ?? may be because I am still at school and not working yet ..
But I have the same opinion about holidays whether in school or work :roll:

Holiday is very important for me. I need it very much.
For only in holiday i can do what i want to do,such as today i stay at home to post reply in forum. Holiday is a adjustment for us. In holiday we can relax our brain, refresh our eyes and go on further self study. In the workday , it is impossible for us have enough to do our private matter.
Of cause , how do you spend your holiday will have different opinion.

I totally disagree with this. Holidays are good for a person to complete/finish his/her home chores/households when he is busy in the official works the other days of the week.

I don't think so, because holidays are the days that you can take time to do other activities
except your routine, and your brain is relaxed, sometimes you may get a new idea or
new friend from holidays time.I sure that have something good in holidays,believe me?
Note: As I'm writing english that is holiday too, so I get many things from EC. {-:

Our brain needs to relax to work fine. Sleeping is necessary for us. We can't work during a long period of time without stopping because our body can react and get ill. The more you work without having a rest, the sooner your body will feel it. Your memory will work better if you get some holidays.

Holidays are for you to relax your mind and do all you really want to do... if you don't like your job, of course. There are people who get more stressed on holidays. In my opinión the best holidays for me are relaxing in the mountain and gathering with friends, having a good conversation and laughing. I don't have children; if I had, I would enjoy my holidays with them, obviously.

I guess for people who have no belief, this is true.
Holidays are the only time or season where we could be happy with the others... there is a feeling of belongingness always...

Good. Did you notify about that your chief? Actually human has not so much time for working without cessation. Life go on. And you always lose some small amount of time. After thirty time go with greater speed. You begin understand that all you have is work. It is sad, depressing, destroying thought. Work is good thing. But with holidays you can get some new experience by reading book, meeting with new people, traveling in new places. Even resting in solitude can be new experience.Of course it depends of what tipe of person you are.

I think holidays aren't a waste of time. In fact, all the year we are under pressure, this could lead to a depression for some people. The best instance for this is when you leave your student life to enter in the life of work. Because in Belgium at the university we have 3 months of holidays (if we pass our exams :geek: ). And at the beginning workers only have few days of holidays. And those few days in a year are not enough to change your mind. Another advantage is when you come back from holidays, you are more motivated to start again the work and you are more effective ! And you ? How is it in your country?

I definitely don't agree with this sentence. I think the way we spend our holidays depends only on us. It somebody want to only lie all days- yes, for me it's waste of time. But if sb want to travel, learn sth new or spend time with friends- it's sth great and for sure it's not wasting time!
