It’s the most wonderful time of the year (to pop the question!)
Christmas is a truly magical time of the year. Make it even more magical and take advantage of the festive atmosphere with a very special proposal.
Christmas is almost upon us – a time of mince pies, mulled wine, and, for many people, marriage proposals. According to experts, Christmas is the most popular time of the year for people to get engaged, and almost a third of men who are planning to propose will do so on Christmas Day.
There are many reasons Christmas is a great time of year to get engaged so, if you’re considering taking your relationship to the next level, read on to find out why you should pop the question this Christmas.
Enjoy the romance
Christmas is a magical time of the year, and with roaring log fires, twinkling fairy lights, crisp wintry walks and, if we’re lucky, a fall or two of snow, it’s a season that is simply made for romance. So why not make the most of the romantic atmosphere by planning a festive day out with your loved one, and ending it with a surprise proposal. With all that romance in the air, how could they say no?
A memorable gift
We all know how difficult it can be to find the perfect gift for the people we love. But what could be better than a big sparkly diamond – especially when it’s attached to a declaration of love and a very important question? Throw your partner off the scent by wrapping the ring in boxes of ever-decreasing sizes. When they finally get down to the smallest parcel they’re sure to be thrilled at the special gift that’s waiting for them.
Share your special moment
Christmas is all about spending time with friends and family, so proposing during the festive season gives you the perfect opportunity to share your special moment with your loved ones. If you think your partner would be comfortable with a public proposal you could pop the question during Christmas dinner, or build it into a festive family tradition. If you want something more private, your family and friends would still be on close hand to help you celebrate your newly engaged status.
Christmas is a time of celebration; people are happy, the drinks are flowing, and there is a party around every other corner. News of your engagement will only add to this festive feeling and you will certainly have no difficulty in finding people to help you celebrate your exciting news. So, take advantage of the celebratory atmosphere that Christmas brings and gather your friends for a very special get-together.
New Year, new start
The New Year represents a time for growth and change, and is all about making fresh starts. So why not take a leap of faith and make a resolution to ask that all-important question and start the year as an engaged couple? Ok, so technically it’s not a Christmas proposal, but a New Year’s Eve proposal can be just as magical.
If you’re thinking of popping the question this Christmas, make sure to take full advantage of the season and take the time to make your proposal as special and memorable as possible.
