Celebrating holidays helps your relationship! Get your Halloween on!

Celebrating holidays is good for your relationship – especially if you’re planning a wedding. No excuses for not celebrating Halloween people! Here are 3 reasons why getting in the holiday spirit is good for you and your sweetie.

Holidays are built-in together-time: We discussed the “I’m too busy with my wedding to celebrate Halloween” concept in an earlier post.  Snap out of it! Take advantage of the momentum in the existing holiday and create traditions with your partner. We’re making memories people!

Holidays are great for new experiences: and it’s been scientifically proven that couples who learn and experience new things together are happier.  Take pumpkin carving classes! Learn to traditional Dia De Los Muertos dances!  Get happy!IMG_3344

Holidays are FUN! : Whether or not you’re planning a wedding, we all need a little more fun in our lives.  Making time to focus on something Halloweeny be it a spooky dinner, decorating your space or just watching The Great Pumpkin you and your honey can make this Halloween a blast.

You’ve got your (fun) work cut out for you. We’ve got Halloween first, Thanksgiving and then the winter holidays are soon upon us.  Get out there and celebrate! 

 

 

Happy New Year! Everybody celebrate!

The Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah, celebrating the start of the year 5775 begins tonight at sundown. Whether or not you are Jewish, I vote that you do something celebratory tonight or tomorrow.  Let me tell you why.

Many cultures have New Year’s traditions and rituals, and most of them are fun and involve tasty food.  In addition to this Jewish celebration, there’s the Persian holiday Nowrooz, all the variants on the Lunar New Year across Asian cultures, and America’s own version with Dick Clark in Times Square.  Why not have everyone celebrate everything?  What better way to foster understanding and cross cultural togetherness?  Plus- New Years times four or five sounds fun doesn’t it?  Who’s in?  Start tomorrow with some apples and honey for a sweet new year.

Be well and love well.
