My Favorite Time of Year

By Matt Sepe, Former Family Services Intern

 

The Holiday Season is an incredibly special time for me and it is by far my favorite time of the year. The excitement and the general feeling of happiness which seems to encompass everyone and everything can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming, but I nonetheless love it. Nonetheless, what truly makes the holiday season my favorite time of the year is the fact that I get to finally be home with my family.

 As a college student who lives out of state, I cherish every moment that I have at home. As a result of the long semester at school, and the even longer commute, I do not have the chance to see my family as often as I would like during the semester. However, getting the opportunity to come home for the extended holiday season is something very special to me. It allows me to reconnect with my family during a time where everyone has a little freedom from the bustle of school or work. The distance between my family and I can often be difficult; however, getting the chance to be home for the holidays makes the moments we spend together even more special.
