"A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in."
- Robert Orben
Orben's definition of vacation is exactly the kind of break I am looking forward to at the moment. We need balance in our lives. After this difficult semester and the finals period that is approaching I am going to do need this time to do absolutely nothing for hours at a time. I can get through the demands and obligations that I face at the moment only because I know that a vacation of bliss and relaxation awaits me in the near future. The specific vacation and special thing that I am referring to right now is of course Winter Break and Christmas. To me Christmas is life's most special and exciting gift.
"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold everything is softer and more beautiful."

Life often becomes overwhelming and too difficult to bear. We need special things to look forward to in order to help us get through the ordinary days. Luckily the special things come naturally in the form of life's gifts. These gifts aren't necessarily holidays, they can be anything that breaks from your typical routine- birthdays, a visit from a friend, vacation, a celebratory dinner, a financial splurge. These little things can help break up the monotony of our typical day. We can get through the ordinary days because we await these gifts with happy anticipation. And we return to our routine we feel a little better, more at ease, and refreshed. Day-to-day living can be difficult and tiring but by keeping these special things in mind we can make it through. We can push through these ordinary and exhausting days because G-d blesses us with breaks, gifts, and special occasions to keep us going!
Keep in mind that life's gifts are abundant,
