Starting Romantic Traditions


Many of our readers have been married less than 5 years. It takes time and planning to start romantic traditions and diligence to keep them. Over the past 30 years we have had traditions that didn’t stick and some that we have practiced since the early years of our marriage. Here are a few you might want to start this year:

Open your gifts from each other on Christmas Eve once the children have gone to bed. Turn on the Christmas tree lights, play some soft Christmas music, light a few candles and enjoy the evening alone.

Visit a special show, musical presentation or park each year – just the two of you. Tom and I love to go to the Epcot Candlelight Processional.

Take a drive one night to see the lights all around town.

Make an advent calendar that’s for your eyes only! The countdown to Christmas becomes much more fun.

Share communion together on Christmas Eve. What a wonderful and meaningful time this can be. Having your husband lead the two of you in this precious practice will enhance your love for each other and for God.

Take an evening stroll in the town of Celebration, FL. They provide snowfall nightly.
