Two in a blanket

There is something magical about two people in a blanket. Just two people sitting together on a sofa covered by a beautiful blanket having a conversation or drinking a glass of wine. It’s a marvelous moment of peace and relaxation rewinding from their busy lives and listening to each other. Enjoying the moment, wrapped up cozy and warm, surrounded by the luxury of a beautiful fabric, the blanket becomes just as important as the sofa in which the two people comfortably sit.


Two in a blanket becomes even more tender when it’s two young people wrapped in a blanket by a nighttime fire. There is something so beautiful to observe in watching how they explore their closeness as they genuinely try to protect each other from the cold. There is beauty in observing how they listen to each other’s body movements and warm each other’s hands, taking in how the fibers of the blanket shelter them from curious interests around them and the nighttime chill.

I remember reading about two in blanket within North American tribes. Young people of opposite genders normally had little contact with each other. The young man had to properly ask the young woman’s family to be able to approach her. After lengthy consideration, the parents may have agreed to it. If the young woman conceded, the couple was wrapped in a blanket to protect their privacy and this first tender moment of exploration. It was quietly recognized by all in the village to leave them at peace and pretend they could not be seen so they would have a sense of privacy without having to leave the security of the village and avoid the risk, that in this dizzy state of mind, a stranger may take advantage of them.

I sometimes wish this would still be the case so young couples would not feel the need to hide in dark and scary places to explore their togetherness.

I think of how different it would be if parents could provide guidance to young couples in a positive way in order to support their need for space without them having to leave the safety of their surroundings. Young couples could instead be surrounded by the beauty of carefully woven heirloom blankets acknowledging the care they feel for each other and the start of a wholesome and beautiful relationship.
