We arrived home late on Sunday from our trip to Asheville and our
neighborhood already looks like Christmas with all the beautiful
lights and decorations people have put up.  I can’t believe it is
nearly here.

To make the season more romantic, try adapting my 12 Days of a
Romantic Christmas tip.  Some people like to count down to Christmas –
others like to start with Christmas and count through January.

Above all, remember why the holiday even exists.

Have a grateful week! — Michael

Nearly all the entries from last week’s contest were correct.  The
largest private home in the United States is George Vanderbilt’s
Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina.  If you have never been
there I highly recommend it.  Asheville is a very romantic city and
the house and surrounding estate are breathtaking.  Jill Blank of
Shiloh, Illinois was last week’s winner.

This week’s contest is on KWANZAA.  Athena and I attended a local
community celebration a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it.
How have you used KWANZAA in a particularly romantic or creative way?
Submit your story and the best one will be chosen to go pick out
something from my PRIZE VAULT, filled with books, An Enchanting
Evening board game, CDs, dance lessons and other fun stuff at

I’m not expecting many entries for this contest so your chances of
winning should be excellent!

Submit your entry by e-mailto:tipofweek@aol.com
Entries must be received by Monday.

12 Days of a Romantic Christmas
by Michael Webb
http://www.TheRomantic.com

With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays the children, friends
and relatives often get all the attention and the spouses are left out
in the cold.  Celebrate this Christmas with 12 days of romance.

On the first day of Christmas…  Buy your mate one box of their
favorite cereal and lace it with lots of “prizes.”  Throw in some golf
tees, Hershey kisses, toy cars or whatever would bring out the child
in them.

On the second day of Christmas…  Take out your two engraved toasting
glasses from the china cabinet and use them.  Reminisce the day you
first sipped from them.  If you never had any engrave your own by
buying some stencils and etching paste at a craft store.

On the third day of Christmas…  Have three meals together.  You
could go all out with breakfast in bed, a picnic lunch and a candlelit
dinner.  Better yet, spend less time preparing the meal and more time
sharing it together.

On the fourth day of Christmas…  Put the pedal to the metal and four
on the floor.  Take a peaceful drive for the day.  Go to county, sight
see in the city or cruise around looking at Christmas lights.

On the fifth day of Christmas…  Fax or deliver a photocopy of your
five fingers (plus the rest of your hand) to your love at work.  Tell
them you can’t wait to be together to hold the real thing.

On the six day of Christmas…  Give her a half dozen of her favorite
flower   one at a time.  Leave one on the pillow, one on her car seat,
one at her office, etc.

On the seventh day of Christmas…  Count your lucky stars by gazing
into the 7th heaven.  If the night is overcast, arrange
glow-in-the-dark ones on the bedroom ceiling.

On the eighth day of Christmas…  Buy an 8 pack of crayons and
together design and color a personalized coloring book of happy
memories you have shared.

On the ninth day of Christmas…  Cats aren’t the only ones with 9
lives.  Take out your scrapbooks, photo albums or home movies and
spend the day soaking up the sweet memories of your past lives
together (adolescent, teenager, dating, engaged, married, parent) and
then began planning for the future ones (empty nest, grandparent,
retirement).

On the tenth day of Christmas…  Massage your sweetheart’s aching
shoulders for ten minutes.  Throw in a back scratch, a foot massage
and a hair brushing if you are feeling extra generous.

On the eleventh day of Christmas…  Bake him eleven of his favorite
cookies (since most recipes make one dozen, these will be bigger than
usual   he won’t complain).  Stick a wooden skewer through the side of
each cookie and then wrap the cookie in a colored plastic wrap.  Place
them in a box or vase as you would a dozen roses.

On the twelfth day of Christmas…  Present your sweetheart with a
custom made twelve month calendar for the new year.  Use personal
photographs or your own drawings to make it unique.  Highlight special
days for the new year.
