It is all too easy to get swept into the whirlwind of the holiday season and realize at the end of it that you haven’t spent any festive time alone with your mate.
If you have children, before they are out of school for vacation, plan a festive holiday date with your mate. It doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, a quiet, cozy afternoon by the fire with a nice hot drink is a great backdrop for ushering in the holiday. Instead of fighting the movie-going crowds, rent a holiday type movie and snuggle together as you watch it on your television or laptop computer.
If you celebrate Christmas, another idea is to have an intimate dinner by your Christmas tree. You work so hard to decorate it. Do you take time to really enjoy the end result? So, set up a small table by the tree, put on some holiday music and allow yourselves to enjoy the simplicity of the season – just the two of you!
