Did you find your way here because you got engaged over the holidays? If this is the case, congratulations! But you’re not alone.
A new poll has found that Christmas is the most romantic time of year to propose. 32% of those who took part in the poll, conducted by The National Wedding Show, consider Christmas Day as the best time, with Christmas Eve following closely with 26.4%.
Surprisingly New Year’s Eve only came third (19.8%), a day we’d considered more popular. Valentine’s Day and the bride’s birthday were considered as the fourth and fifth most romantic days to pop the question.
We couldn’t help but to ponder over this during our lunch break, and decided on this: The day he gets down on one knee and asks for your hand will be a memorable one, whichever day of the year it may be. And in our opinion, it would be more memorable if it was a bit more unique than a holiday celebrated by most people on this planet. What about the day you first met? Your first date? The first time you kissed? Much more romantic – and far more kudos to him for remembering!
