This year’s Winter Break gives students nine days of free time to spend with family and friends.
Winter Break allows everyone to relax away from school and celebrate the holidays with close ones. No matter what holiday, each family has their own unique traditions to celebrate.
Leah Alkire, a freshman in Centennial, said that she goes to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina every year with her family, “We always get a house by the beach and we have a lot of fun!”
When senior Daniela Thomas’s family is visiting, their tradition involves an empty suitcase at 12:00 am on New Years. “If you want to go on a trip the upcoming year, you have to take an empty [suitcase] and run around the block,” said Thomas.
