By Kristen Fidh
Daily Arts Writer '
It's yell into December, but instead
of celebratin the season, most col-
leae students are boniged down with
final exams. Classes are ending, and
the realization is finally setting in that
skipping every Anthiro lecture maybe
xxasn't soch a good idea.
But as eery class lets out for the
final time and as exery exam is con-
pleted. the Lrin on every student's
face onl% cmxows wider as the lon -
axxaited vacation closely approaches.
Som ildcherish the opportunity
to catch up on sleep and detoxicate
their bodies from caffeine build-up.
Some will spend time with missed
families And some wxill party like
rock stars xxith Dick Clark in their
exenmil> sbest.
This past September, LSA fresh-
man (Cristina Jimenez moved to Ann
Arbor from her home of Quito.
Ecuador and hasn't been home since.
"For Newx Year's back home. what
they do is real different,' Jimenez
said. 'What they do is make an old
man and wrlitc down eervthinn von
want to fortet about the whole vear."
These men are made of paper or
cloth and can be representatix e of
xxhatexer a person desires to throw
axxax and start new for the next year.
Jimnez and her family usually help
her nrandmother create the symbolic
man and list experiences each family
member wants forgotten.
'At 12 o'clock you burn this man

and ever'thing you wrote on it to for-
ct." she said. 'This is to give you
good luck and everything you wanted
to forget about the past kxill start out
nie" ."
Jimenez explained that. often
times, people burn political figures
xwho haxe angered the citizens by not
helping the less fortunate.
"You see so many of these men
around the city and people burning
them.' she said. "They do a lot of fire-
works. but my mom has always told us
to stay axav from stuff like that.''
Nexertheless. Jim nez xbill fet to
see the family and friends from which
her education distanced her,
''It's basically a short trip, but it's
worth it," she said. "I haxen't been
home for a wxhile. and I miss it."
Some family traditions consist of a
religiious obserxation while others sur-
mount in a peaceful evening dinner.
For LSA sophomore Iiciacl
Richey. family bonding is made
throulh a variety of sports. .
. e are Loing to Colorado to ski
this vear. and I am probably going to
moe up to the black diamonds,"
Richer said. .Before I nexer did that
difficult of a ski hill, but I think I am
finally ready"
To rest their bodies and warm their
hands. the family %xill come back to
its home in Midland, Mich. to contin-
ue the fun and games.
"I will come back here for Newx
Year's. and, like always. my family
and I are going to go to the annual bil-
liards and darts competition," Richey

dents see the time as an opportunity
to refill their wallets.
