Today is officially the first day of my Summer holiday. Yahoo!
As a child, I remember looking forward to the first day of the school break at the end of the year. I think back to the time when my sisters and I bundled into my mom’s green Mercedes, happy that we had been freed from studying and the restrictions of school for a while. As my mom drove us home, we always sang a favourite: Summer Holiday by Cliff Richard and the Shadows.
The song still pops into my mind whenever the school Summer break begins. I cannot help but smile at the memory of my sisters and I gaily singing this song every year until we finished school.
Do you have a “Summer song” that you hum when your vacation begins?
