christmas vacations

It’s said to be the most wonderful time of the year. The holidays are back and many people are taking time off to spend with their families. The way that people spend time with each other does not matter as long as everyone is together, happy, and healthy.

From Disney World in Orlando, Florida, to the Savannas in Africa anyone can go anywhere in the world for the holidays. If you could go anywhere in the world for the holidays, where would you go? The majority of airline flights say that the most traveled to destinations for the holidays are in Florida, for several reasons. One famous popular destination is Disney World, the “most magical place on earth”.

Another great place to visit in California.

“I’d love to visit there because of the wonderful weather. The wonderful weather along with the west coast is a paradise for me,” exclaimed a Belvidere North student.

An overlooked place to travel during Christmas time is Niagara Falls. The falls have been flowing since the end of the ice age.

“The falls is a magical sight that I believe everyone should see at least once in their life,” stated John Marshall.

He’s not the only one who thinks so. Staff from the newspaper polled a class to see which destinations people would prefer. The polls stated 15 for Florida, four for California, and eight for Niagara Falls. The results of this poll show that the majority of people would like to go to Disney, but there was a higher than expected than the response to visiting Niagara Falls.

Overall, any Christmas vacation is a time to spend with your family. These vacations make memories and these memories will be remembered for a lifetime. These memories will make people more than happy, and make people smile when revisiting the old memories several years later.
