You’ll probably only get four of these. Then you’ll be stuck working full time earning a paycheck for the rest of your life.

Winter breaks are very special, and we, as students, are in unique positions to be afforded them. Therefore, we encourage you to take full advantage of this one — whatever that means to you personally.

Now, we know the economic situation that is affecting all of us this year may prove to be an obstacle in your way of carrying out your wonderful winter plans, but don’t let this get you down. The holiday season is not necessarily about the most expensive gifts, or spending money to jet off to exotic (and warm) destinations. It is about being thankful for what you have and using this time to honor such things as family, friends and good health.

This is a year that will slow our over-zealous spending that usually characterizes the holiday season and, hopefully, it will slow us down enough to realize those things that really matter.

So, spend some time with your family and friends, relax, take some time to read a book that you actually want to read, sit back and watch some movies you didn’t get to catch in theaters, go sledding, hit the slopes and just have some fun.

Have a wonderful winter break CSU — see you in a month.
