Watching spring break movies can be a good way to spend your spring break, especially if you cannot afford to go away for the week. Spring break is usually more important to students and to teachers than it is to those who do not get the week off. If you are in high school or college, spring break can be especially important to you, since it is a time to spend with your friends. High school seniors often go on their senior trip over spring break as well, which helps them create memories that will last a lifetime.
