Date Night: Four Holly-Date Ideas

In Food, To Do by Holly Jolly Springs

Christmas is certainly a romantic season. Visions of sugar-plums and hallmark movies flash in our heads. We imagine all the magic moments that make Christmas so special. Things like: Kissing under the mistletoe, wrapping presents for your children, looking at Christmas lights in your car, and walking through the park through the snow. (Okay, maybe not that one. We live in the south.) 

Here are some date night ideas for a Holly-date around Holly Springs:
