The good, the bad, and the ugly: Christmas

The good: After finishing exams, students spend 17 days relaxing and spending time with their families and friends. This leaves almost three weeks for stressed students to recuperate from school.

The bad: Although three weeks off sounds nice, students go stir-crazy. By the second week off, all video games have been played and Netflix is a list of binge-watched series. Boredom sets in.

The ugly: Does anyone really enjoy spending Christmas Eve with their families just to go visit them again the next day? Weird foods combined with mildly inebriated relatives gets old quite quickly.
