Nowadays people benefit a lot from the two-day weekend. Like everything else,the two-day weekend has both favorable and mffavorable aspects. Generally,the advantages can be listed as follows. First, people can relax themselves thoroughly in a two-day weekend, watching TV at home or going shopping. Besides, people can make use of the two-day weekend to take a short journey. Most important of all, people can do a lot of housework, washing, cleaning, putting things in order, and taking care of young children or old parents; They can also study, read hooks or do scientific research etc. But every coin has two sides. The negative aspects are also apparent. First, the two-day weekend induces people to dip into their purse. To make matters worse, the two-day weekend encourages idleness in some people. Worst of all, having more leisure out of school, some children are led astray. As to me, I spend the two-day weekend in a positive way. On Saturday, I usually relax myself, watching TV, taking exercise and visiting my friends and relatives, etc. On Sunday I make a lot of preparations for my next week's life and work.
