Hobbies are activities that people do in their spare time, for the sake of enjoyment.
A hobby usually involves work of some kind,
but the work is fun for the person who does it.
Some people enjoy their hobbies very much
and like to spend much time on those hobbies.
There are many different hobbies that people enjoy.
One of the most popular hobbies is gardening.
Many people enjoy growing beautiful flowers
or tasty vegetables in a garden near their house or apartment.
People who have a garden enjoy seeing the results of their work,
when flowers show their bright, beautiful colors.
But gardeners also enjoy the tasks of gardening itself.
They like to work in the soil, planting and watering their flowers.
Another popular hobby is photography.
Some people enjoy taking pictures of the people and places around them.
People who enjoy photography may sometimes buy expensive cameras
that allow interesting photographs to be taken.
But even people who have only a basic camera can still take beautiful pictures.
For many people, car repair is a favorite hobby.
Some people enjoy looking at the engine and other parts of their cars.
Those people make repairs or improvements to their cars.
Of course, this is a useful hobby,
but many people enjoy "fixing up" a car simply because they enjoy working with cars.
Some people collect objects as a hobby.
For example, some people collect postage stamps, and some people collect coins.
It can be very satisfying to find the missing parts of one's collection,
especially when the stamps or coins are very rare.
Of course, these are just a few of the many hobbies that people enjoy.
