Tip #11: Special Days
Celebratory dates: sure there is always his/her birthday, anniversaries (large or small), Halloween, and even St. Valentine’s day if you want to fall into that commercial trap (I’ll have a special St. Valentine’s romance post in February)! No, this tip is to suggest that you get creative with coming up with special dates during the year that are dear to your relationship and that you and your partner can celebrate together. For example, you could celebrate Full Moon nights every 27.3 days; make an even bigger deal out of it when it is a Blue Moon (did you know that a blue moon is when there are two full moons in one month?); or maybe you might want to acknowledge a favorite Goth icon’s Birthday or Deathday in a special way (see NewGothCity.com for these dates); or even better yet, start a special yearly, monthly, or even weekly holiday that only both of you invent and enjoy together! The bottom line here is that you and your partner spend time ritualistically appreciating a special event together.
