Christmas and New Year

Usually most students enjoy having three to four weeks off over the Christmas and New Year period, and go home.

With this being my last ‘Christmas holiday’ as a student I was looking forward to heading home and catching up with all of my friends from home.

However I then went and got a job, so I was only around for one or two days at a time to see my friends and family.

As students I don’t think that we appreciate the time that we do have to (usually) get drunk and generally do nothing over the Christmas period and ignore the impending exams.

I did go home and see my family at Christmas, and it was great to spend time with them despite rushing off to get back to work.

I managed to fit in a trip with my Mum to Harry Potter World, and it was a brilliant way to end the year, especially as my mum hadn’t been there before and she got excited to see everything.


Seeing all my friends who I hadn’t seen in about a year was brilliant; going to a house party in pyjamas turned out to be the perfect New Years Eve.

Celebrating my other friends 21st was a great way to start the new year, with a fancy dress theme of Las Vegas and  taking a lot of pictures as a ‘tacky tourist’ was very fun.


Spending time with friends and family is the best way to celebrate Christmas and New Year, especially as it could be a lot more difficult to catch up once we all graduate!
