There is this phenomenon that occurred for one week in March for university students in the US. It involves one full week without any classes or academic obligations, and goes by the name of Spring Break. At this time, most students travel some place warm like Florida (since many parts of the country are still quite cold in March), buy fake IDs and party on some beach like it's the end of the world. My friends and I decided to do something different. Instead of flying South, spending the money on plane tickets and fakes in order to soak up the sun, we hopped in a buddy's car and drove North to Montreal, where the snow was still falling, the people were friendlier, and the drinking age was 18. This was our spring break.
