Romantic holidays in May

With lovely weather all around, May holidays are the right time to tell your beloved how much you love them. And even if the month is primarily known for Mother’s Day, lovers still have a lot to look forward to with these occasions.

May 1 - May Day and Take Your Pants Off Day

While May Day observed on May 1 has varied meanings ranging from the historical to political context, for romantic purposes this is the time to pamper your partner with a bouquet of flowers. Remember the popular rhyme which tells of April showers bringing on May flowers? So this day, gather wild flowers from the mountainside or the country, tie them with a satin ribbon and present them to your beloved. If you live in a city though, you can get them from a florist but to give the occasion that special touch, make sure that you buy spring flowers. Bunches of camellias, azaleas, lilies and bluebells will not only thrill your partner’s heart but get you completely in sync with the season. In fact most flowers also have their own significance, for instance apple blossom signifies harmony and concord with your loved one. So choose a seasonal bloom which best describes your feelings and watch your relationship blossom.

May 4 - Naked Day

After having taken pants off each other three days ago, go the whole hog on May 4 in order to celebrate Naked Day. stay home the whole day in your birthday suits or take a roll in the sack. For the more adventurous a day out at a nudist colony or a nudist beach can also be a great way to spend this sexy day.

May 4-10 - National Hug Week and Postcard Week

These seven days are observed as the National Hug Week in the US.  along with conveying love, a hug is a wonderful gesture of sympathy, friendship and support. So start off each day by giving a big squeeze to your partner. do it for a week and you just might end up making a lovely habit of it. If however you are in a long distance relationship, send an email or a text message to your beloved with lots of 0000s – the digital marker of a hug. He/she will not only feel loved but perhaps even sense the warmth of your embrace across the miles.

Yet another way long distance lovers can celebrate their partnership this week is by sending postcards to each other every day since this is also Postcard Week. choose one which has a lovely landscape shot of your town or city and it may set your beloved thinking of take the next flight to your place. Make the subsequent one more personal by getting it custom-printed with your photo or one in which you appear with your partner. and even if you are living in the same city as your partner, sending a postcard can be a lovely way to tell them that you have been thinking of them. Make a date out of it by sending a postcard of a particular landmark and then visiting it together. On the other hand, for sentimental lovers a great idea would be to send postcards with a new love quote for each day of the week.
