Christmas is such a busy time of year, it’s easy to let your marriage take a backseat to all the festivities and events that are taking place in December.
Even if you don’t have time (or funds) for a fancy dinner and movie, you can still take time to relax and connect with your spouse in a fun way.
Here’s one Christmas date night that won’t break the bank and can even be the start of a new yearly tradition!
All you need is:
- Your car (unless you are willing to walk in the cold!)
- Mugs of Hot Chocolate
- A Notebook
- Each other!
Whip up some hot chocolate and go for a drive (or walk) together. Find the fanciest neighborhoods in your town and look at the beautiful light displays that they have in their yards.
Try to find the most extravagant decorations and come up with awards for the houses based on their decorating charm, or beauty, or even cheesiness!
“Most Traditional” or “Master of the Inflatable Machine” etc. Be sure to take notes on which houses are receiving what title so you don’t duplicate an award.
Have fun getting creative with the titles!!!
If you want to add a bit of competitive fun, you could try seeing who can spot the most Santas or snowmen, or even make it a “double date” with another couple, competing to see which husband & wife team can find the most exciting lights throughout the night.
This is sure to be a fun date night that you will not soon forget!
