Some people think that holidays have a special value or meaning, whereas others think that they are just a day when one does not have to work.

I think that holidays are special days that are worth celebrating. First of all, they are holidays because something important happened on those days in the past. For example, the Victory Day, 9th of May. On that day everybody remembers those who died fighting against Nazis. Second, these are the days when you can meet with your friends and have some quality time together. They also give you a feeling that today is a special day, which creates a good mood.

At the same time there are people who think that a holiday is nothing more than a day off. You do not have to go to work or do something that you do not feel like doing.

In my opinion these people have a point. These are the days when you do not need to work indeed but, they are more than just that. They give people hope if it is the 31st of December or they remind people about women and how they are important for us if it is the 8th of March.

In conclusion, I would like to say that holidays are special days that we should pay proper attention to. Each of them connects us with a special event from our history. I strongly believe they should be treated accordinglyTreating them as just days off is going to make our life boring and bereft of a lot of happy moments.
