When you have time off, do you still spend it on(line)?

How do you spend time off?On the heels of Labor Day, a federal holiday in the United States, comes news of a study that was conducted in China about how children spend their vacation time. Certainly kids between the ages of 4 and 14 would be involved in outdoor activities and/or summer camps, right? According to the 103 kids who took the poll, the majority of their time was spent online. See the Reuters news story: "Most Chinese children spent vacation online - poll."

Here's a snippet from the story:

The poll of 103 children aged 4 to 14 found that just 4 percent chose to do outdoor activities during the holidays and only 9 percent took part in summer educational camps.

For the TechRepublic members who live in the United States, I'm curious to know how many of you spent your time online.

If you selected "Other," please chime in the discussion thread and let us know how you spent your long Labor Day weekend.
