My Boyfriend & I: The Next Few Months

Hey guys & gals,
So. I recently found out that I will have to be away from my boyfriend for the next 3 months or so....
That would be Christmas, New Years, my Birthday, & Valentines Day.
We have discussed all of this together and we are both bummed about it because it would be our first "holiday season" together as a couple.
We have been best friends for 3 years or so, and we started dating a few months ago. We were looking forward to vacations, but my parents decided to go out of the country for three months, so now I am going to be stuck with them. 
Any ideas on how we can make our experience a little more enjoyable?
We are already going to use Skype every day, but I mean, how can we make the holiday's special?
Any ideas? Thanks<3

I'm so sorry that you have to go through that! I've gotten to spend very limited time with my boyfriend of almost a year over the past four months because we're going to different colleges.

Skype is a wonderful thing. Being able to see their face and hear their voice is definitely something that will brighten your day. However, letters are a great way to keep in touch too!
Send care packages with pictures and his favorite things for holidays. Stay up on Skype on New Year's Eve until midnight. Send a cute card on Valentine's Day! (:

Being far away from the one you love sucks. But you guys can definitely make it! (: Good luck!

Thank you!!!<3
Yeah, it really DOES suck. I hope you and your boyfriend get to see each other more, as well....I sure hope my boyfriend and I end up at the same college like we plan to.
Skype has become our main vice over the past few weeks.....we Skype for like, 3 hours at a time every night....:P
On New Years, we are gonna do what you said and stay up all night together. It sucks that we can't even KISS each other or HUG or ANYTHING at ALL.
For HIS birthday, we are planning to go out for the entire day, as long as everything pans out ok.
