The Truth Doesn't Have to Hurt Tuesday ~ Why to Pop the Question on Christmas

This is a sponsored post.

Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la, la la la la.

And surely it is a time of joy, fun, family and friends, and it can also be an incredibly romantic time. Depending on which hemisphere you live, you can either snuggle up by an open fire and watch the snow fall, or oil up, spread out the beach towel, and soak up the rays. Both propositions have their own unique appeal.

And speaking of propositions, Xmas is also a perfect time to propose. Just think about it; with love and good cheer in the air, family at the ready, and a background of “giving,” could there be a better time to ask that special other for their hand in marriage?

There may be people who think that Valentine’s Day, only two and a half months down the road, and with all it connotes is perhaps the day to perfect day to propose, but aren’t Valentine’s Day proposals becoming a bit clichéd? They lack the element of surprise that a Christmas proposal packs and they also lack the gathering of family and that certain je ne sais quoi that is the atmosphere that seemingly pervades during the Xmas – New Year period.

It is also easier to hide your intentions with a Xmas proposal. Hang the engagement ring on the tree disguised as just another decoration and then pop the question with the “decoration” at hand. Decorate the tree with lights that spell out “Marry me,” then darken the room and turn on the lights at the appropriate moment; the different ways of proposing on Xmas are only limited by your imagination. And given that gift-giving is part of the season, it is the perfect cover for your plans.

How about hanging a Xmas stocking with the ring placed right at the bottom in the corner? Chances are that your future fiancé will miss finding it and you can play a game about them missing something. If they do find it, simply move on to Plan B and propose – either way it will be memorable.

A proposal should be many things – unforgettable, fun, and romantic. It should have a twist or two to help make it special and should also, if it does not actually involve family, then at least be in close proximity to family, so that you can spread the happy news quickly. Xmas meets all these criteria as the perfect time to pop the big question.

Special things happen on Christmas. Important things happen on Christmas. Memorable things happen on Christmas. What could be more special, important, or memorable than making sure that your one true love is officially taken off the market? I’ll tell you what is more special – doing it on Christmas.
