Fall Fun

by Ellen Wilson

September and October are full of holidays, birthdays and other celebrations. Organize a date around one of the following:

National Piano Month:  If you are gifted enough to play the piano, share that with your date and learn a few duets together.

National Coupon Month
: Look at our previous Delicious Date coupon night for some good ideas on how to turn this one into a fun group date activity.

September 9 - Colonel Sanders' birthday: You'll never have a better excuse to take a date to KFC or order KFC for an outdoor dinner.

September 13 - Milton Hershey's birthday: Celebrate with a chocolate party or by making peanut butter cookies with Hershey's kisses on top.

September 13-September 19 - National Assisted Living Week: Organize a group service date and head over to an assisted living home to play cards, bingo, charades, or other games.

National Popcorn Popping Month: There are so many ways to pop popcorn. On the stove, in the microwave, over the fire: Incorporate popcorn into your date either by eating or by making popcorn strings to use for Halloween decorations.

Family History Month: Now here is a great date. You can either go to the BYU Family History Library for tours and classes or head up to Salt Lake City Family History Library.

National Pizza Month: Don't go the easy way out and just take your date out for pizza. Make some homemade pizza together or have a big group party where everyone brings different toppings. Go beyond pepperoni and make dessert pizza as well.

October 5-Ray Kroc's birthday: Not that we want to promote too much fast food, but on the founder's birthday, a fun trip to McDonald's is okay by us. Dress up as Ronald, the Hamburglar, and the other McDonald characters.

October 9-John Lennon's birthday: Trust us. Just spend your evening listening to "The Beatles" and it will be the best date you've ever had.

October 25-Pablo Picasso's birthday: Plan a date for today that includes a canvas and paints.
