The summer vacation for school students is a long break from school during the hot months of May and June, that may last anything between a month and a half and two. The temperatures touch forty degrees Celsius and more in almost the whole of India, and schools give their students a long summer vacation. Students thus save themselves from venturing out in and exposing themselves to the summer sun.
Students, along with their family and friends, spend their time usefully doing what they enjoy the most. They go out in the cool hours of the day, in the mornings and evenings. Students enjoy their holidays learning new things, developing hobbies, travelling to interesting places, and meeting their friends and relatives. After their summer vacations students get back to school refreshed and rejuvenated, and ready for the next semester or term at school.

I have an annual two month-long summer vacation. It is usually from mid-May to mid-July. This is the time when the temperature in Delhi, the city where I live, goes past forty degrees Celsius. It is welcome to stay indoors during holidays in daytime when it is very hot. I spend the mornings and evenings doing interesting activities that I otherwise cannot engage in when I have to go to school. I go for a jog and also do yoga in the mornings, and play cricket in the evenings. I also love to read, and enjoy thriller and detective stories.

During my vacation, as the temperature reaches a high of 46 degrees Celsius, I like making delicious and cool dishes. I enjoy having cool drinks. So my brother and I join my mother in making sherbet with berries and fruits. It is fun to make. We love to drink sweet sherbet with chilled water. We also make lemonade with fresh lime. These drinks help us feel cool and refreshed.
I also like to make salads with cucumbers, tomatoes and onions during meals in summer time. I like to chop the salad vegetables in creative ways and in different shapes. It is equally creative to arrange the salads on serving plates.
I also love reading Hindi literature during the holidays.

When we go to different places in the country we eat the local food, and buy the local spices and other food items for use at home.
I like to take photographs of the beautiful landscape and the local people in the different places we visit. I have an interesting collection of photographs that I have taken in the many visits we have made during my vacations.

I love to read. So during my vacations I read interesting fiction that I cannot otherwise engage in during school days. I find detective and thriller stories and science fiction very fascinating. I either issue the story books from the public library in Hyderabad, the city where I live, of which I am a member, or then I buy the books. I read the books leisurely at my pace.
I am very keen to learn to play the piano, so I have enrolled for classes at the music school. My teacher is a professional pianist, and has offered me the chance to play the piano for an upcoming music extravaganza during the New Year celebrations at the largest auditorium in the city.
My friends and I love to have ice cream during the summer months. And so we learnt to make ice creams at home during our vacation.

We enjoyed making these and sharing them with each other. We also learnt to make various chilled beverages.

Summers are synonymous with holidays because we get a two month-long break from school during the hottest time of the year. It is good fun as I can do a number of interesting activities. I get sufficient time during my summer vacations to develop my hobbies, and do all the fun activities that I cannot do when I have to go to school.
I do not sleep till late as the mornings are the cool hours of the day in summertime and most productive time of the day. So I wake up early and go for a morning jog with my sister in the park nearby. Many other joggers come to the park too. It is refreshing and energizing to go for a jog. I also study in the mornings so that I can complete my holiday homework, and also do some extra practise in mathematics.
I also love to play badminton. So I play with my friends in the evenings, in the playground, in our colony, where many residents come and play games. I have participated in many badminton matches at school and also won prizes. I hope I can become a badminton champion someday.
I enjoy eating cool salads during summertime. I love to be creative and make salads with raw vegetables like onion, tomato and cucumber, and with leafy vegetables like lettuce.

I love to read fiction in English and Hindi, and my grandparents present me a number of nice story books.
Paragraph on Summer Vacation 6 (350 Words)
I enjoy my summer vacation as I can devote time to the activities, besides studies, that I love to do. I love to sing Carnatic music and to play the violin. When the session is on at school I cannot go for daily violin and music practise sessions. But during the vacation I go every evening to the music school where I spend three hours singing and playing the violin. I had my first public performance during my summer vacation and the audience was very appreciative.
I love to read both Hindi and English literature. It is enjoyable going to Connaught Place, the shopping hub of Delhi, during the summer vacations, and having ice creams at an ice cream parlour, and getting books that I like to read from the library. I like reading the works of the authors of the past, both Indian and foreign. I enjoy reading poetry, and also penning verses. I have presented my poems at events at my school, and have also won prizes at competitions. I also have a collection of my poems in Hindi and hope to publish them as a book.
Summer vacations are also the time when my mother pampers me and my brother at home. As it gets very hot, with the temperatures touching forty-five degrees Celsius, we prefer staying indoors during the daytime, and our mother makes us lovely goodies to eat. She loves to bake cakes. And so she tries using many different healthy and nutritious ingredients to make delicious cakes and other confectionery. We love gorging on all these sweetmeats. My mother also whips up ice cream at home. She also makes interesting beverages with apricots, plums and cherries.
Summer is also the time when many varieties of juicy and sweet mangoes are available, and my mother makes many different dishes using mangoes. She also hosts mango parties for all our friends. During the summer vacations I complete my holiday homework that our teachers assign to us at school. When the vacation ends I feel refreshed and energized to get back to school for a new semester.
Paragraph on Summer Vacation 7 (400 Words)
Before school closes for the summer vacation in the end of April, our teachers give us a number of interesting projects and home work to do for two months. We complete these assignments before we get back to school in late June. The projects are in the sciences and the arts. These require creativity and study, and are fun to do as we learn a great deal of new things outside our school syllabus.
During my summer vacations, in the evenings, I love to go to either the Marina Beach or the Elliot’s Beach with my parents and brother. Chennai is a humid city, but at the beach the breeze is cool in the mornings and evenings. We have a good time there. We munch on steamed peanuts and have lovely ice creams. We dine out sometimes after the visit to the beach, and that is fun too.
My parents also take us to different interesting and beautiful places of the country during our summer vacations. We have visited hill stations like Ooty, Kodaikanal and Yercaud in Tamil Nadu. We have also visited Arunachal Pradesh in the North East. We have also gone to historical places like the caves of Ajanta and Ellora, in Maharashtra, and Kanyakumari, the southernmost tip of the country, in Tamil Nadu, during our summer vacations. We also visit spiritual centres as my parents like to spend time in meditation. I also enjoy the peace and quiet at such places, away from the din and tension of modern life.
I love to draw and paint with water colours. During my summer vacations I can spend my time to paint leisurely. When we travel to beautiful places in India I like to paint the scenery and the local people. It is a very rewarding experience as I get the exact feel of the place that I paint. I therefore carry my art material when I go on trips with my family.
I have participated in many art competitions and won prizes too. I have also had a solo exhibition in an art gallery in Chennai. The viewers greatly appreciated my work. Summers are also the time to enjoy ice creams. My mother pampers my brother and me with all kinds of goodies. I love to read English literature. It is good fun to read leisurely during the summer holidays munching on the goodies that my mother makes.
