Thanksgiving break always seems to be underrated but there are many reasons why this break is superior to Winter and Spring break.
This is a whole holiday that revolves around food and sitting. You get to eat large quantities of all the best foods until you can’t see straight. Then after you’re done consuming, you just get to sit around with football playing in the background. There is no better holiday than this. Plus you get to do it all with the ones you love!
2. It’s a lovely grace period
With finals week approaching it is nice to have this whole week off where you get to relax your mind before your brain explodes from all the studying you have to do! It is just enough time to rest before you start getting cabin fever at home and need to go back to school to see all of your friends.
3. Perfect time to do fall things
Want to go shopping? Want to drink cider and watch Food Network? Want to bake some cookies and lay down? This is your time to do all of that. There isn’t a lot of time to do all the fall favorites while you’re working hard in school but now you have a whole week to enjoy yourself!
4. A preview of Winter break
Winter break is long and you have no work to worry about the whole time. Thanksgiving break is a little preview of that so you’re not in total shock when you have nothing to do. It’s just enough time to remind you the end of the semester is near but not long enough that you get bored half way through and are desperately wanting to return to school. It’s a perfect amount of time to relax.
Odds are your parents are going to give you as many leftovers as your heart desires. You can live like it’s Thanksgiving every single day until you go home again! What better foods to eat every single day?
Some may argue this break isn’t long enough or it’s not as much fun but I beg to differ. This is the laziest break of all and that is truly what makes it so wonderful.
