12 Places In Manitoba To Go On A Date During The Holidays

The holidays don't come around all the time. School and work usually take centre stage and Christmas is when most of us get the most time off so we totally need to make the best of it! 

Love is in the air around the holidays with cute Christmas lights everywhere lighting up the night. Everywhere you go is like a picture perfect date spot being all decorated and festive. It's like the one time of year that EVERYONE goes hard on Pinterest. 

Let's not forget about the most romantic part of the holidays though, mistletoe! Sure,Valentine's Day has flowers everywhere but this is the only time when people randomly hang a plant around everywhere that you're supposed to kiss under.

The story behind Mistletoe is believed to be from ancient mythology. Basically, this guy "Baldur" was killed by his enemies with a Mistletoe arrow. His goddess mother cried on the Mistletoe and the plant made her tears heal his wound and brought him back to life. She was so happy that she blessed the Mistletoe and promised to kiss everyone who passed under it. We may not be an ancient goddesses, but either way, prepare to pucker up!
