The first thing you can do during a long winter break is to check out an old building with a pool of slimy green goop that used to be the sole water source around here. Just don't drink it, or your entire winter break will be totally un-fun.
You can sit on a fence and enjoy the view of nothing, going on for miles and miles.
Take a walk through the woods and try to not get creeped out when squirrels and other small critters (such as armadillos) make noise in the brush, and you think something is following you...
like maybe this guy. When you get bored with the walk in the woods, keep an eye out for Skunk Apes (the swamp version of Big Foot). When you hear a loud knock, like something hitting a tree, that means the skunk apes are talking to each other.
We didn't see any skunk apes. Maybe next time.
You can also have Christmas! That's a good thing to do during winter break. Our tradition is to open up a present on Christmas Eve, and that present is always new pajamas.
In the morning, you can open presents,
show off the gifts you received,
and then feel loved because people were nice enough to give you cool things that you'd never buy for yourself!
Play a few games on your new Wii. And dance for joy (or for points, either way works).
Another great thing to do during winter break is to go to the beach with cousins!
It's fun to jump over the man-o-war spread out all over the sand, or just play in the waves (while dodging man-o-war).
As you can see, there is plenty to do over winter break to keep you busy, if you live in a swamp!
