Summer or Winter vacations?

January 6, 2009 5:57am CST
which do you prefer, summer or winter vacations? I think in really cold countries winter would be preferable, while for countries and places that fall on the equator, or the hotter zones, summer vacations would be appriciated. I live i a really hot area, so the idea of sending the kids to school in the sun is frightening, so i guess it's a relief that they have summer vacations, and we can go to some hill station, to cool off. What about you?

in cold countries the people like to get a way for a vacation to a warm climate if they can afford it. I live in Canada and I would prefer a summer vacation or going to a summery place in the winter for my vacation.

India is a summer country and the place where I stay has good winter conditions for max to max 2 or 3 weeks. Summer is intense and as you say, any break in the searing heat is always welcome. Schools usually have 6 weeks of summer vacations and it’s a good time for the teachers too. however, I would have liked a longer winter vacation too, instead of the short 1 week. The reason being, we are ill-equipped to handle winter. There’s no running hot water and the weather is really cold with no room heater. Even if I go for a vacation, I am not sure how well equipped the hotels would be, whether they would have adequate blankets and so on. So I really dislike winter more than summer…I am OK with summer but not with winter.
