~~~    From the Editor      ~~~

Tomorrow we will be returning home from our fabulous stay in Istanbul.
This is a city that excites the senses with wonderful sights, sounds
and smells.  It has been on our list of *must see* places for a long
time and I am glad we finally had the chance to spend time in this
cultural oasis.  Maybe I’ll be able to share some photos on my website
soon.

If any media wants to reprint this weeks tip, they have permission to
do so as long as they attribute it to TheRomantic.com

Have an alluring week.  — Michael

THE 12 DAYS OF A ROMANTIC CHRISTMAS
by Michael Webb
Founder, http://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 him or her a half dozen of her
favorite flower, one at a time.  Leave one on the pillow, one on the
car seat, one at the 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…  Dress to the nines and go out to
the swankiest place around and if you can’t afford the full meal just
order drinks or dessert.

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.
