Christmas Break Sleeping Schedule

Christmas Break is the best break of the school year. It is a two-week long break with two holidays in it, Christmas and New Years. aDuring this break, students like to take advantage of the fact that they don’t have school the next day so they stay up late and sleep in. I went around the school asking some students what their sleeping schedule was like over break toad there were a few different answers. The most popular answer was that students stay up past midnight and sleep in past 10 a.m. Another shocking answer was that some students take advantage of the break to catch up on sleep.
