A couple of weeks ago, I posted a piece on ending Christmas slowly. I like the idea of stretching the celebration of Christmas through the full twelve days. Over the next days, I am going to post some ideas for celebrating using the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas” as a guide.
On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, two turtle doves.
Turtle Doves form strong pair bonds and therefore have been used to symbolize love. On the second day of Christmas, make a date with someone you love. Whether spouse or significant other, family or friend, do something special together.
- Go for a walk.
- Meet for coffee
- Have dinner at a special restaurant
- Take in a movie
- Invite them for a home-cooked dinner
There are lots of options. Make a special time for just the two of you.
