Santas on the corner. Carolers at the door. Dreidels spinning. Year-end wrap ups on every news outlet. There is a feeling to this time of year that draws something out of almost everyone and broadcasts great insight into who we all are. If you’re meeting someone for the first time or are in the early stages of a relationship, how this person embraces the holidays will tell you a lot about their personality. Try these three holiday tests to learn a little more about your potential romance:
Does her home feel like the holidays? How a woman keeps a holiday home speaks volumes about the environment she might create for the two of you. Is it full of personal touches, smells and maybe a cookie or two? This will be created a half dozen different ways during the year, so pay close attention.
Is she a master wrapper? We’re talking ribbons and paper here, not Run DMC. Wrapping is the final detail of a gift that separates those committed to making great experiences versus those just meeting the obligation. A beautifully wrapped gift is another indicator of the energy she will put into her personal attention
to you and the pride she takes in her work.
Does she have a favorite Christmas Carol? If someone sings only once a year, it’s most likely a rousing rendition of Frosty the Snowman or O Come All Ye Faithful. Her ability to let loose during “there must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found” will tell you a lot about her willingness to let go and have some fun. It also works with Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.
Check out these indicators and remember, how you embrace the holidays is telling her a great story as well!
