Today is known as Super Tuesday because it is the Tuesday when 10 states participate in voting for their party’s nominee for President. This year it’s the Republican party selecting their nominee.
Why not celebrate this day in a special way? Here are a few ideas:
- Pick one of the Super Tuesday states and prepare a dinner based on their food. The states to choose from are: Ohio, Georgia, Tennessee, Alaska, Massachusetts, Idaho, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Vermont and Virginia. We’ve added a link to each state which will take you to a site with recipes from that state. Enjoy!
- It is customary to introduce the candidates recalling their best character qualities and attributes. Take some time to write out your own introduction speech as if your spouse was running for President. What would you commend about them to a crowd? Read it out loud to your family after dinner.
- Romantic Ballot Booth – This one takes place after the kids are in bed. Make a ballot for your spouse to fill out. You can make the things they’re voting for as sexy as you want. i.e. LIGHTING: 1. Candles 2. Lamps 3. Flashlight 4. Darkness; MUSIC: 1. Jazz 2. Rock 3. Country 4. Sound Machine 5. Quiet; (you get the idea). Some other categories could include: POSITIONS, LOCATIONS, APPAREL, BEVERAGES, ETC. The best part of this kind of voting? Whatever your spouse votes for WINS!! Then, they get to celebrate by enjoying everything they “voted into office!” For fun you could put a sign on your bedroom door that says: The Oval Office. Print the following badge to give to your spouse the next morning. It will be sure to make them smile all day Wednesday, as well!
These ideas are provided to help you make Super Tuesday something you’ll actually look forward to each election year. It sure beats watching the election results – don’t you think?
