The End of the Year
At the end of the year, people usually go on vacation or take a few days off. It’s a time when you stop to think about happened – about good things and bad things, mistakes, achievements and so on. Many of us celebrate Christmas and get together with people we like – parents, relatives and friends. Besides, life seems to give us another chance to try to succeed and improve.
Many celebrations take place all over the world and things, at least for a short time, seem to be a little better than they usually are – there is more happiness, hope and motivation.
I really like this time because I enjoy life more. To me, it’s definitely the best part of the year.
