National Flashlight Day is a lesser-known day that marks the winter solstice, which is the shortest day and the longest night of the year. This year the winter solstice falls on Friday, December 21, 2018. Make the most of National Flashlight Day as you spend time with your love and enjoy the longest night of the year together. From enjoying a starry night to a date night subscription box and more, here is the definitive list of winter solstice date night activities.
If the night is clear, bundle up and head outside with your love to gaze at the stars. Bring hot chocolate, tea, coffee or whatever warm beverages you and your partner prefer. Also, pack a blanket to spread out on the ground or to cover chairs to stay warm as you gaze at the starts above. Do some research ahead of time to discover which constellations are visible in your area, or simply look up at the beautiful night sky and enjoy the time with your love.
Grab a flashlight (even the one on your phone) and play a few rounds of flashlight tag outside. Here is a quick reminder of the rules: One of you hides while the other counts to a specified number without looking. Then, the counter becomes the seeker and searches for the other player with the help of the flashlight. The hider tries to evade the seeker and avoid being tagged with the flashlight. You can make the game interesting by placing friendly and romantic wagers before the start of the game.
Plan a scavenger hunt for your love to complete together. Hide items or clues for your partner to find. You can keep it confined to your backyard or send your love on a hunt around your town. The clues can include inside jokes and other information that pertains to your relationship, just make sure that each clue leads your partner to the next one.
If the weather prevents you from conducting the scavenger hunt outside, bring it indoors and hide items throughout your home. Turn down the lights and have your partner use a flashlight to keep with the theme of the day. As your partner unravels the mystery and successfully navigates the hunt, the anticipation will build. The final reveal can be anything you desire, even a romantic escapade under the stars.
Going to a movie is a classic date night activity. Give your date a festive twist by dimming the lights, and watching a movie with a memorable scene that features the use of a flashlight like “E.T.”, “Jurassic Park”, “Darkness Falls” or “Jaws”. If the weather permits, set up a viewing area outside and watch the movie al fresco.
