Model Answer 1 :

Introduction :

Well, frankly speaking in this fast-paced contemporary era, we hardly get time to relax and rejuvenate with our family. In the hustle and bustle of life, where we all are prominently stressed, I must concede, my family is my lifeline. And spending leisure time with them works as a stress buster for me. Since my childhood I have spent a whale of a time with my kith and kin either by dinning out, going out on a shopping or a picnic, playing some outdoor or indoor games or just relaxing at home.

What activity it is?

However, one activity which truly refreshes my family and me is, interestingly watching a movie together in a home theatre, staying at home. My family is a mix of three generations (you can say joint or nuclear family as per your convenience), and having them all together for recreational activity is quite challenging.

When do you do it? and With whom do you do it?

Since we all are tremendously occupied during weekdays activities such as studies, jobs, doing household chores, and so on, we look forward to weekends to spend a gala time together. Despite having all four ages in my family, none of us has conservative thoughts.

Do you enjoy doing it?

Instead, my grandparents are extremely openminded. We thoroughly enjoy watching all genres of films together under one roof, be it comedy, family drama, action, thriller and many more. Sometimes, we rent movies, or sometimes we select from our video collections. A much more noticeable point is that we create the same setup, like a movie theatre. We also relish finger-licking snacks, like popcorn, nachos, puffs, at times pizza along with our favourite hot or cold drinks.

Earlier I used to believe that watching movies on a big screen is more enjoyable compared to home. Moreover, I would not be able to enjoy at home as it would be a dearth of experience. Indeed, I was wrong, also nowadays, I go to the cinema hall only once in a blue moon, until and unless the movie is a blockbuster.

Conclusion :

Now that I realize that nothing could be more precious than spending an enthusiastic time together with family and establish a strong bonding, I would certainly look forward to numerous worthwhile experiences with my family, spending leisure time together.
