If you’re thinking this is the right time for you, you’re not alone! Christmas and the holiday season are a great time to get engaged for a lot of reasons.

Why Propose at the Holidays?
With the beauty of the holidays and a festive spirit in the air, it’s easy to get swept up in the romantic momentum of the holidays. What better time to celebrate the love you share with your partner than during the season of hope and joy? There are plenty of beautifully decorated venues during the holiday season that can add to the ambiance of your proposal. Plus, surprises, special outings, and secret presents are part of the norm this time of year, so staging your perfect proposal can be easier this time of year than at others. Your partner may want to be surrounded by friends and family, or at least share the news with them face to face once you’re engaged, and most likely you’ll be seeing plenty of loved ones during the Christmas season.
Why Are Christmas Proposals so Popular?
Jewelers report that more diamond engagement rings are sold during this time of year than any other. It’s easy to see why- Christmastime seems to provide a backdrop for all things meaningful and special, and proposals are exactly that. A Christmas proposal will become a significant memory that can be savored for years to come, a story to be shared with children and grandchildren. By proposing at Christmas, you’re beginning a new memory for the holidays as you begin your new family. What a great way to add new, personal meaning to your holidays!
What Are Some Fun Ways to Propose?
There are endless ways to create a proposal scene. From the classic presentation of the ring at a special dinner to a scenic natural backdrop, choosing the setting for your proposal should ultimately come down to what you know she loves. Choose a location or event that’s meaningful to both of you. If she’s close to her family, talk to the holiday hostess about proposing during the family get-together so she’ll be surrounded by loved ones to share in your joy. If she’s a more private person, a quiet proposal might be in order. Have her discover the ring inside a special ornament while decorating the Christmas tree together, or present her with the ring when you give her Christmas presents.
No matter how you choose to propose, be sure to keep tradition alive by getting down on one knee and actually saying the words, “Will you marry me?” She’s most likely been waiting to hear those words and the moment will be perfect when you say them.
