December and more precisely, Christmas eve is the most popular time of the year to propose. It even beats Valentines day, which comes in at a close second. The summer months are the most popular for weddings, but autumn and winter are the most prominent seasons for marriage proposals. A close friend of mine was recently proposed to on an ice skating rink in December, with Christmas trees, lights and full festivities – it can certainly be an enchanting period of the year. Having been proposed to twice before I believe it’s the thought that goes into it, and the love and affection behind it that matters more than the date or location, but hey ho, each to their own. I can understand though, that for some people who have been dreaming of this moment their entire lives, it needs to live up to certain expectations. Then there’s the whole debate about the ring, but that’s for another time!
