A hobby is a favorable activity one pursues in one’s spare time for pleasure and recreation. Usually a hobby depends upon a person’s interest. People are busy in earning money or solving their problems.

They went to change their golden moments of their life into money. But it is the misuse of time. Almost all the people get leisure time but they do not know how to utilize it. A hobby removes the dullness of man. It refreshes the mind. People may choose gardening, stamp-collecting. I was drawn to this hobby when I was just six years old. My aunt gave me and album of stamps on my birthday.

I felt very thrilled to see beautiful stamps pasted in it whenever I had spare time, I gazed at them and that gave me endless joy. I began to request everyone to send me some novel stamps.Stamp collecting is a less popular hobby today than it was in the early 20th Century, but today it is estimated that about 25 million people enjoy the estimated number of stamps collectors is around 200 million.

Tens of thousands of stamp dealers supply them with stamps along with stamps albums, catalogues and other publications. There are also thousands of stamps (philatelic) clubs and organization that provide them with the history and other aspects of stamps.

Today, thought the number of collectors is somewhat lees, stamps collecting is still one of the world’s most popular indoor hobbies.

My hobby has helped me to take great interest in history and geography. This stamp-collecting hobby refreshes my mind. It gives me joy and happiness. We make new friends. We develop good qualities. This is how I spent my recreation and leisure.
