Tis the season for cozy evenings around the fireplace. The scent of cloves fills the air. The desserts are decadent, and the reunions are joyful. The festive season stokes the desire to draw your loved ones close and show them how much they mean to you. It’s no wonder that engagements are in the air during Christmas. There’s a buoyancy to the mood and an extra bit of beauty all around. Everyone is celebrating, but pop the question, and the fun increases exponentially.
While many are busy looking up the tastiest holiday recipes for peppermint brownies, others scour the internet for the most handsome holiday outfits. Still, others are doing their best to find stocking stuffers for their inner circle. The excitement is palpable around the holidays. Looking for the best Christmas ring might make your heartbeat a little faster, so we’re here to offer a few suggestions to ease the search.
Are Christmas engagements popular?
One word: Absolutely. In fact, many, many publications before us have looked into this question. Their verdict? Christmas is one of the most popular times of the year to propose. Even the New York Times and Johns Hopkins have written about the phenomenon. Around wintertime, there is clearly a little love in the air .
Why propose on Christmas?
For one thing, proposing on Christmas is a bit of a life hack. Your soon-to-be betrothed might not want to wear a dress for a hike, and the request to do so might tip her off that something is up. Luckily, the holidays can all but guarantee elegant engagement photos. What better excuse than a Christmas party for dressing to the nines? For Christmas, everyone already looks their best.
What’s more, the scenery is beautiful. Even if you don’t have a gorgeous snowy landscape all around, Christmas decorations make everything a bit more gay.
For those who want to share the day with those they’re closest to, Christmas can be perfect. Your family, whether they’re chosen or related by blood, are already gathered to share in the joy after the proposal, and they’re all ready to celebrate together.
Last, but not least, that holiday bonus could not arrive at a better time.
