As a child I used to be excited about winter vacations as it meant train journeys and travelling to another city and spending a few days away from the normal routine. The day or two days train journey was filled with catching glimpses of the dawn sky becoming brighter as morning came closer or even reading a bit but what excited me the most was bringing out the board games and playing the afternoon away. But, at most we could carry only one game per child and that too was limited to smaller board games like Ludo or chess. But with android phones and tablets, this problem is solved because you can carry as many games as you want without worrying about suitcase space!
