Summer has well and truly set in. As kids, it meant only one thing: vacation! Summer holidays meant cramming in as much activity as possible in the two months when there was no school and no studies.
How were your summer holidays spent? Did you spend your days..
…playing cricket with your friends, taking a break only for lunch?
…lazing under the sun, curled up with an Enid Blyton?
…visiting relatives in faraway cities by train?
…at Summer camps? Art classes? Learning taekwondo?
Regardless of the way we whiled away time, all of us were sure to get nervous around the time results would be declared! And of course, when school would re-open, we would be found frantically finishing our ‘holiday homework.’
End of May would mean gearing up for the new year at school. Dreading the holiday homework aside, the beginning of a new year would mean new shiny books, new uniforms, possibly a new bag and shoes! Also, we would wait in anticipation for the first day, wondering who our teachers would be, wondering if we would have any new additions to class.
All in all, those days are something we cannot forget easily. The excitement of the last day at school would only be matched by the excitement on the first day of a new year as well!
What about you? What are your favourite memories of your summer holidays?
