Model Answer:
The best holiday in my life was the holiday I had with my parents and sisters 2/3 years back. I work in the capital city and visit my hometown 3-4 times in a year. That time I got a week’s holiday and I planned to give surprise to my family members. I reached home at around 1.00 am and my parents and siblings were very happy and surprised. They became even happier when they heard that I have got a vacation for 7 days. My mother next day called my elder sister who came to visit us that day with her kids.

The next day we went to watch a movie in the theatre and we ate our dinner in a Thai restaurant. We return home at late night and then played some indoor games.
Next day we went to a nearby picnic spot and that was a very pleasant experience. We cooked our food and to our surprise, that was delicious. We played outdoor games, ran in the fields and swam in the water. This was a truly great day that I enjoyed.

Since my vacation was getting over, my parents planned to visit our grandparents’ house. Though our grandparents are not alive, still we cherish the place and enjoy our stay there. In the next morning, we started our journey in our automobiles. It was a bit tough to get all of the family members in the car yet we did that. There were total 9 people in this medium size car.

In the evening we reached at our grandparents’ house where only one of my uncles and his family members live. We went to visit the nearby river and enjoyed the open and fresh air. In the evening we returned home and had our dinner together. Our 2 days’ stay there passed very pleasantly and quickly. I returned to our own home and the next day I returned to the city. This holidays I had is a memorable one as I get very little chance to meet and spend time with all of my family members at a time.
