Freshly in love this season, or looking to fan your romantic flame? Hereâ€™s the top Canadian 5 hotspots and holiday date outfits to try this winter.
Dating around the holidays is like a freshly fallen snowflakeâ€”each outing, delicate and unique, needs to be handled as such, or you might just watch them fade away. On that festive warning, weâ€™ve rounded up the hottest spots in Canada to take your date during the holidaysâ€”for those who embrace Canadian winters and the ones who enjoy it from their windowsill with a mug of hot chocolateâ€”plus the appropriate holiday attire, for every romantic status this season.
Winter 2012 holiday date idea #1. Go skating on Ottawaâ€™s Rideau Canal
Date rundown: Grab your skates on a Saturday afternoon and head to Canadaâ€™s famed and loveliest outdoor skating rink. Donâ€™t worry if youâ€™ve never learned how to skate, all the more reason to hold on tightly. Keep up the adorably festive romance and make your way to the Byward Market together to split a piping hot and cinnamony Beaver Tail.
Where: The worldâ€™s largest skating rink on the Rideau Canal that runs through downtown Ottawa.
Date style: Wrap yourself in your favourite knits: scarf, mitts and Canadian-style toque. Your favourite Christmas sweater (the one with the huggable holiday polar bear) is both totally appropriate and subtly irresistible.
Winter 2012 holiday date idea #2. Hit the slopes in Whistler, B.C.
Date rundown: Could there be anything more Canadian than spending the day at Whistler Blackcomb, then heading back for late-night fondue at The Chalet at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Hotelâ€”with your ski instructor?
Where: The Fairmont Chateau Whistler, 4599 Chateau Blvd., Whistler, B.C.
Date style: Lots and lots of layers. Strap on a pair of your warmest winter boots and puffy down-filled coat and youâ€™re ready for a day on the hills.
