Holidays


The importance of holidays cannot be overstated. Nowadays we find life an exhausting business. Work and worry both are equally unavoidable. This is the go of life. On the other hand, the necessity of having a little rest from work and worry cannot be denied. Man’s life is bounded by routine. Holiday makes an opportunity to come out of this routine. Holidays are those sweetest moments when we are free from our normal duties or usual routine work, we are our own master and can dispose of this time according to our own will. They give us relief from heavy pressure of regular work or normal duties. They break the monotony of life and offer rest, recreation and relaxation. There are occasions when men enjoy holidays. This may be on some religious occasions like the Eid-ul-Fitr, Eid-ul-Azha, the Ramadan, the Puja, the Muharram or some national occasions like the Independence Day or Victory Day and the like. To work without pause is tiresome. Holidays in different ways. Some may spend their holidays on gardening and paying visits to friends and relatives. And some may attend cinemas, religious meetings etc. The students may go to the places of educational interest, such as a museum, a zoo, and an art gallery or Botanical garden. Life is working no doubt, but perpetual work means losing interest in the varieties of life. “What is this life, if full of care, we have no time to stand and stare?” The best life is that which combines in itself work, rest, amusement and a variety of interests. We live not only to create work, but also to enjoy the holidays. Holidays, if properly used, give us the exact taste of life.
