The holidays are all you can think about right now. With Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" constantly stuck in your head and pretty lights and decor everywhere, you're in the festive mood. You're probably even looking at date night through a holly and jolly lens. Your typical Friday night plans with bae this time of year may involve watching your favorite holiday films at home, but why not live out those movies instead? Draw inspiration from the classics and you'll see there are a lot of holiday movie-inspired date ideas to choose from.
Instead of watching Buddy the Elf and Jovie run around NYC looking at all the Christmas trees, you and your partner can go on a scavenger hunt to find the biggest tree in your town or city. If your go-to movie is The Holiday, maybe that means you and bae should go on your very own romantic getaway and stay in an English cottage.
These date ideas have been right in front of you all along, and now it's time for you to star in your very own movie instead of watching one on TV. (But don't forget to also throw in a few holiday movie nights as well, because there's only so little time and so many movies to watch.)
