Day Eleven – Twelve Dates of Christmas

Monday, December 11th, 2017

Idea Eleven – Ski Lodge

Unless you live somewhere cold and hilly, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to visit a real ski lodge.  However, much like ice bars and igloos, there are ski lodges opening all over the place.

Decorated to give you that “alpine” feeling, they are a wonderful place to sip wine and get to know each other.  They are cosy and you can try seasonal drinks such as eggnog or hot chocolate with a shot of your favourite tipple.

Day Eight – Twelve Dates of Christmas

Friday, December 8th, 2017

Idea 8 – Kew Gardens

Kew Gardens really goes to town at Christmas.  It’s heavily decorated with baubles, lights and even singing trees.  It’s the perfect date to walk around peacefully and take in the sights.

If you don’t live anywhere near Kew Gardens then don’t worry. There’s bound to be somewhere similar near where you are.  Have a look for stately homes, gardens or even parks. You’ll soon find one that’s appropriate.

Day Seven – Twelve Dates of Christmas

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Idea Seven- Wine Tasting

Wine Tasting is a great way to have fun getting to know each other while learning something new at the same time.  You’ll get the chance to try five or six different varieties, usually along with some nibbles too.

As it’s the Festive Season, do make sure you include a glass of Mulled Wine too!  It’s the perfect way to warm up the cold winter nights.

Day Six – Twelve Dates of Christmas

Wednesday, December 6th, 2017

Idea 6 – Ice Skating

Ice Skating is always a very popular dating idea.  There are rinks popping up all over the place and it’s the chance to try a fun outdoor activity, often with great scenery.

Many people are put off as they find it hard to do or don’t want to look stupid. This isn’t really an issue though as you’ll probably be the same position. If you keep falling over you can grab hold of your date and you’ll have something to laugh about.  If they are a better skater then they will enjoy teaching you to how to skate.  It’s only for an hour so you’ll soon improve anyway.

Do remember to warn your date to wrap up warm and have somewhere to go to after – perhaps with a log fire.

Day Five – Twelve Dates of Christmas

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

Idea 5 – Ice Bar

Ice bars are a wonderful place to meet for a first date as they are different to your usual pubs and clubs.  You are only allowed to visit for a limited time and you’ll be given a warm coat to wear once you are inside.  When you visit, you’ll discover the whole bar has been carved out of ice. There might be sculptures or artworks for you to enjoy.

Entry usually includes at least one drink which is served from an ice luge. You’ll enjoy a naturally “ice cold” cocktail while talking to your date.

Afterwards, you can go to a warmer bar nearby or why not go for a hot meal to continue the evening?

The Meaning Behind Christmas Mistletoe

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

Christmas comes with many different traditions, each celebrated around the world. While many nationalities carry their own tradition, there are several that have become universal. The first instance of these traditions is all folklore, often relating to the British immigration to North America and the Pagan festivities of the season. While we may not know exactly where each of these traditions came from, we know they are synonymous with the Christmas season. Let’s take a look at some of the most common traditions:

The Tradition Of Mistletoe

The history of the mistletoe actually comes from the Druid people. This plant, although known in the wild as a weed, is said to bring good luck to couples who kiss underneath the bushel. As the tradition goes, each couple takes a berry from the leaves. Once there are no berries left, there is no need to kiss underneath the leaves. As long as there are still berries, there are still wishes for good luck in the future. In current tradition, mistletoe is made of plastic so there aren’t any berries to pick. It’s more of a fun thing for couples to do than actually following the traditions. If you’d like to follow the tradition this year, try and pick yourself a real mistletoe and use it in the doorway of your home.

The First Gingerbread Man

It is said the first Gingerbread Man was created by Queen Elizabeth (the first). The spice trade had started booming in the UK and these spices came over from the Middle East. In an attempt to impress visitors, the Queen baked cookies that were shaped in the likeness of her guests. This sparked the interest of the people and eventually became a tradition for the holiday season. Gingerbread houses are a whole other mystery, with no real description of where they came from, say the fairytale of Hansel and Gretel. Either way, the smell of gingerbread cookies is synonymous with Christmas cheer.

Gift Giving

For those who have read through the Christian Bible, presents were given to the baby Jesus by three wise men. This is the first notable instance of gift giving on record. For those unfamiliar with the story, this happened on what we now call Christmas Eve. These gifts were presented, each representing something different to the future of the blessed baby Jesus. Today, we practice this tradition by purchasing gifts for the people in our lives and placing them under the tree. This action comes from the Pagan rituals of blessing for the upcoming years.

The Christmas Tree

The tradition of a Christmas tree has a rich history. There are many different associations with the first Christmas tree. Most notably is the Riga tree, which may have been the first instance of celebrating around a tree. It is a common practice in Pagan festivals during the winter months and has been for many years. Today, Christmas trees are put up inside of homes and decorated to show off to guests and visiting family members. This is often more of a bonding tradition than actually praising or celebrating the season.

Idea Four – the London Lights

The London Lights are turned on each year in areas around Oxford Street and Regent Street.  They make the streets look so much more beautiful and give the shops a really Christmassy feel.

Of course, there are Festive lights all over the UK in every high street.  Blackpool and other seaside towns compete to have have the best ones so if you are near there you can meet nearby and enjoy them.

Day Three – Twelve Dates of Christmas

Sunday, December 3rd, 2017

Idea Three – Winter Wonderland

The Asian Single Solution absolutely adore Winter Wonderland.  The biggest one takes place each year in Hyde Park, but there are small versions in other major towns in the UK.

For one month only, Christmas is brought to life in this spectacular event.  There are lots of fairground rides, shows and activities for you to walk around during your date.  It really does make you feel very special in such a unique atmosphere

Do keep in mind that it can be quite expensive and the food/drink is often quite overpriced  Budget for this and then it won’t spoil your fun.  Think of it as a charge for admission to such a magicial display.

Day Two- Twelve Dates of Christmas

Saturday, December 2nd, 2017

Idea Two – Christmas Markets

If you want an instant talking point, you can find Christmas Markets in many high streets.  They are usually copies of European markets, with lots of pretty lights and wares to buy.

No reputable market is complete without it’s own hot dog stand. Bratwursts are a very popular delicacy and they usually have a variety of the sausages available.

Take a stroll around you’ll find homemade goods and lots of art and crafts.  This could be candles, paintings, perfumes or Christmas cards.  Maybe you can buy each other a small trinket as as souvenir?

Day One – Twelve Dates of Christmas

Friday, December 1st, 2017

 

As a bit of Festive Fun, we will be giving you 12 fun dating ideas over the next few days.  You can use them for inspiration for when you go out on dates with members of the site.

Idea One – London Igloos

You might not have realised, but igloos are popping over all over the place.  These are modern little outdoor bubbles that give you the chance to meet someone in a fun,private environment.  You can see the stars at night and eat or drink to your hearts content.  With some you can try fondue together if you fancy it.

Don’t worry, these igloos are heated and many also come with blankets just in case you get a bit chilly.  We think they are the perfect romantic environment to warm up your love life.  If nothing more, you’ll have a great night to remember for years to come.

They are extremely popular so if you are interested you will need to book up early. They sell out very quickly each year so if you don’t want to miss out start planning today.
