At last! Finals are over, your books are closed, and winter break is on like Donkey Kong (people still say that, right?). Now you can relax with your family and friends, enjoy the holidays, and do pretty much anything you want without thinking about school for a blissful couple weeks (unless you've elected to take one of those crazy winter session classes, in which case, go forth and conquer!).

So without further ado, here's a look at 10 of the best things about the most wonderful time of the year—winter break—as told by everyone's favorite elf.
