Every year, the month of December offer a roller coaster of emotions for all.

The first few weeks involve an overdose of cramming for exams and stressing out over whether they made the grade or not. Following this, an overwhelming sense of calm and euphoria sets in when the student body realizes they are free from deadlines, assignments, essays, and homework.

The Christmas season offers a chance for students to get away from the stresses of every day high school life and relax for two weeks before ultimately returning to the day-in, day-out grind. The opportunity to sit at home, flip through holiday movies, and indulge in lots and lots of good food should be relished and exploited to the highest degree.

With this being said, take advantage of the opportunity to get out and have some genuine fun. Whether its hanging out with old friends, making new ones, or spending some time with that special someone in your life, Christmas is about spending quality time with the most important people in your life. We encourage our readers to live life to the fullest, however within the bounds of legality and common decency, because work continues for everyone when we return in January.
