Essay on How I Spent My Winter Vacation for School and College Students

The winter vacation is a period of time when we can rest, relax and spend time with our families or friends. This period of time also allows us to do activities that we enjoy and don’t have the opportunity to do during the other seasons of the year.

January 21 (Friday) Sukkot Ends

Sukkot is a harvest festival, and it is celebrated on the 15th day of the seventh month in the Jewish calendar. It lasts seven days (or eight nights). Sukkot is one of the three pilgrimage festivals, or “High Holidays,” that occur each year. The other two are Passover and Shavuot; together they are called “The Three Pilgrimage Festivals.”

Note that this year Sukkot begins on September 23rd or 24th depending on where you live in Israel (since there are only 30 days in September).

January 22 (Saturday) School Closed – Fall Recess

Fall Recess is a week-long break that occurs during the fall semester, usually in late October or early November. This break is for students to go home and spend time with their families. Teachers plan activities for their students, who are also encouraged to play outdoors with friends. The following week (January 22) will be Winter Break, which will last until February 3rd.
