As a child Christmas felt magical, because of all the special things you did only at this time of year – decorating sugar cookies, Christmas stories by the fire…etc. Keep the magic alive by starting some traditions with the guy in your life. Here are 11 ideas.
1. Go ice skating.
2. Go to a Christmas tree farm and cut down your own.

4. Drive around the ritziest neighborhood in your town to look at the fancy houses’ lights.
5. Buy each other one special ornament each year.
