This is the time of year where local parks open up small, frozen lakes for ice skating for the public. You can put on the winter coat, hats, and gloves and get to the local pond. They should be renting ice skates there. You don’t necessarily have to be a talented skater to have a fun time. Part of the fun is laughing at each other as you fall. It’s fun, and it’s something you don’t get to do all year round.
Spend a night together in front of a hot stove. Find some recipes you want to try and take some time to cook a romantic meal with each other.

Winter is a great time for staying in and cuddling while watching a movie. Get a big blanket that the cover the both of you while you lounge on the couch in your pajamas. You can light some candles or a fire if you have a fireplace. You can also get some hot cocoa ready for the two of you. Holiday movies are great, but don’t feel limited to the genre because it is Christmas. If action or horror is more your thing, watch what you like to watch. Of curse, you might not want to finish the movie…
