Cupid’s Advice:

Relationships have a lot of firsts, but your first holiday as a married couple should be special.  Cupid has some tips:

1. Thoughtful gifts: Rather than spending a lot of money on expensive gifts for each other, try to find something that will remind your spouse of you and your relationship.  Plan ahead!

2. Take a time out: Your relatives and friends may be fawning over you as the new couple.  When the attention gets to be too much, quietly slip into another room, and take five minutes to breathe together.

3. Keep a sense of humor: The holidays can be overwhelming, stressful, and a little crazy.  Be ready with a joke on hand to keep you and your spouse light and laughing.
