Nowadays, there are two opposing opinions about holidays. Some people prefer celebrating them, whereas others ignore taking part in holiday celebrations and say that they are just days off.
In my opinion, holidays are useless and are not worth spending time and effort on. Firstly, holidays should help people relax, enjoy their free time and forget about the problems they face on a daily basis.
Secondly, if holidays are regarded as additional time off from work, there is no need to prepare for them because it can be difficult and expensive. When people celebrate holidays, they have to buy some food, lay it on the table and invite guests.
However, some argue that celebrating holidays has many benefits. Due to holidays, we get to know about the traditions and customs of our ancestors. Moreover, a holiday is a great opportunity to spend time with family and friends.
Nevertheless, I tend to disagree with this opinion. There are many other ways to learn about the traditions of the past. For example, a person can read a book, watch a film or find information about them on the Internet. Furthermore, in order to communicate with family and friends, holidays are unnecessary. People can meet and take care of their parents not only during holidays but in their daily life, too.
To sum up, in spite of the fact that some believe that holiday celebration is a worthwhile alternative, I am sure that celebrating holidays is meaningless and stressful.
