Nowadays, there are many kinds of activities for people entertaining in their leisure time, especially in holiday, such as climbing a mountain, having a picnic, holding a party and so on. However, these recreational activities have its advantages but also bring some harmful influences to people's lives.
First, to some extent, these recreational activities enrich people's lives. Those who take part in different activities will not be easy to feel lonely or boring in their leisure time and live wonderful lives instead.Second, taking part in some group activities is a good form to strengthen friendships. For example, many students will hold a union to collect their old classmates or friends in winter holiday so that they have a common time to communicate with each other. Last but not least, such activities like climbing a mountain provide a good chance to do exercise.
However, these recreational activities also bring some problems at the same time. For one thing, taking part in too many these activities will increase the burden of themselves or their families because it is inevitable to spend some money in holding these activities. For another, some recreational activities have potential harm for participants' health, particularly staying up all night, drinking and smoking.
Therefore, in my opinion, we have to make a careful consideration before we take part in these recreational activities.
