A hobby is a favorite pastime of a person. Hobbies differ like tastes. If you have chosen a hobby according to your character and taste you are lucky because your life becomes more interesting.
Hobbies are divided into four large classes: doing things, making things, collecting things & learning things.
The most popular of all hobby groups is doing things from gardening to traveling, from chess to volley-ball.
Making things includes drawing, painting, making sculptures, designing costumes & playing musical instruments. Almost everyone collects something at some period of his life: stamps, coins, books, records, postcards toys.
Some collections have no real value. Others become so large & valuable that they are housed in museums & galleries. Many world-famous collections started in a small way with one or two items. People with a good deal of money often collect paintings, rate books and other art objects. Often such private collections are given to museums, libraries and public galleries so that others might take pleasure in seeing them.
No matter what kind of hobby a person has, he always has the choice of learning from it learning things can be the most exiting aspect of a hobby.
