Hello,friends!As students,what period is your happiest days?–Holidays!I think everyone will agree with this answer,so do I.But what kind of holiday do you like better–the longer one or several short vacations in a year?I think each of them has its advantages and disadvantages.As for me, I like the latter one.
Now, let`s look at the good and bad points of the two kinds of holidays. Of course, I`d like to begin the topic with my favorite one–short period of vacations. Fist, short vacations are a great relaxation after busy final exams.When we finish the exams, we know that we`ll have a month to think freely, to do other things besides classes, to visit friends, to be with our family, to go to concerts, to watch sports contests,and so on.Second,we can plan to travel during the hort vacations. In spring, we can go to mountains, to see the various flowers that can`t be seen in cities, to see the stream flowing, to climb the mountains, and to appreciate the beautiful scenery on the summit!What a wonderful picture, especially for we students always swimming in the "sea" of books! And in summer, we can go to the seashore to enjoy the sunshine and ong beach.In winter, we may go to see the snow scenery!It gives us a lot of pleasure.At last, the most important one is that we will not forget classes after the short vacations. The shortcoming is that, for those students who want to make some money to cover their school expenses, the vacations are too short for them to make enough money.
As for the longer vacations, we can have a longer relaxation, we can have a longer relaxation, we can go to remote areas or go abroad to travel. But if we only have one long vacation for a year, isn`t it dull for us?And we also may forget some of our lessons after we return to school.
From the above, I thind the short period of vacations have a lot of advantages comparing with the longer ones.So why not join us in short holidays and enjoy everything we`d like to do!
