Here Down Under, the students fall off the planet in fall. That's why it's called fall.

Not in Australia. The school year is from late January to early December. They get off for the 'summer holidays' of Christmas and New Years. :)

Kinda wish they would do this in the US for December for those kids who are starting college in the winter instead of the fall.

Either they finished high school early or they decided to take that first semester off before starting college.

Back in my day "?" I knew kids on both ends of that.
