Why Do People Propose During the Holidays?
The festive holiday season is the perfect backdrop for a romantic proposal. Whether you decide to propose in front of the Christmas tree or wait until the ball drops on New Year’s Eve, there are plenty of opportunities to pop the question.
People also propose during the holidays because they may be visiting family members that live far away. This means that you’ll be able to celebrate your engagement with your loved ones in person instead of sharing your exciting news over the phone. If you’re planning an elaborate proposal, you can also enlist the help of family members and friends to make sure everything turns out like you imagined.
People tend to take time off from work around the holidays. If you and your partner have a few vacation days coming up, you may want to time your proposal accordingly. That way, you’ll have time to throw an impromptu engagement party or go away for the weekend. Take some time to enjoy being engaged before returning to your full-time jobs.
