Holiday Dating

With three festive holidays looming closer, here are some date ideas for those in the mood to celebrate.

Valentine's Day
Start off the date by writing cheesy love poems to each other. It doesn't matter if you're just friends; these are fun for everyone. Make up the details if necessary.

Buy some almond bark, heat it up and then dip sandwich cookies or wafers in it. You've got white chocolate-covered cookies at half the price of pre-made ones. Plus, they are a lot more fun to make and eat.

Finish the night with a romantic movie. We suggest watching Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan in "Sleepless in Seattle." It's one that never gets old.

St. Patrick's Day
Wear green from head to toe. Girls, wear bright green eye shadow. Guys, paint your face green if you're feeling brave.

Read the Dr. Seuss classic "Green Eggs and Ham" while eating some tasty green eggs and ham or anything else you feel like coloring green. Don't worry; green food dye is not harmful to eat once a year.

Paint pictures of rainbows and leprechauns. Hang your date's picture on your fridge after it dries.

Easter
Since most Easter egg hunts are for children under 12, volunteer to help out with a local Easter egg hunt. If you have nieces or nephews in town, take them along.

Next, take a trip to the store to fill an Easter basket for your date. Split up and set a time limit and budget. The most creative person wins, but both get to enjoy their candy.

Lastly, it's a must to dye Easter eggs and eat them. Find a dye pack and make eggs interesting with stripes and polka dots. Remember to name your eggs and give them faces.
