What is it about the holidays that make marriage proposals so popular?

The lights are twinkling and the music is festive which can only mean one thing; the Holidays are here! As the year comes to a close, it is time for reflection of the past, and excitement for the year ahead, which might be why you are seeing so many engagement announcements!

In fact the three most popular days of the year for marriage proposals are Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Years day and here is why:

1. Make This Holiday The Most Memorable

A lot of people find the holiday season to be the happiest time of the year. The holidays are all about creating new traditions and memories with family and friends. Getting engaged during this merry season will give you and your significant other the best memory of all. Now, every time the mistletoe gets hung and the eggnog starts flowing you will be reminded of the special day you asked the big question!

2. The Holidays Mean More Time Off Work

Couples that get engaged this time of year usually have a couple extra days to spend together celebrating before they have to return to work. The first few days of being engaged can leave you feeling like you’re on cloud nine! You and your new fiancé will be too excited to focus on your day jobs, so the holidays are the perfect time to take a break and enjoy the love!

3. You Will Be Surrounded By Your Loved Ones

It can be hard to find the time to celebrate all the special occasions if your family and loved ones don’t all live in the same place. Family members and friends tend to come to town this time of year so get ready to brainstorm some proposal ideas. Getting engaged during the holiday season means you will be able to celebrate with the ones who mean the most to you.

4. Winter Holidays Add a Romantic Backdrop

Holiday engagements are so popular with proposal planners because of all the love in the air! The winter brings cozier nights and festive decor, which is the perfect romantic setting to pop the question. The warm glow from the fire, and fresh sprig of mistletoe creates an irresistible scene no one could say no to.

5. An Engagement Ring is the Perfect Gift
