The holidays are full of family, friends, and gathering together to spend time with loved ones. It also marks the kickoff to “engagement season” (which typically runs from Thanksgiving to Valentine’s day). That’s a pretty big timeframe, and it begs the question: what are the most popular days to get engaged? Obviously if you’ve found that special person to spend your life with, there’s no need to wait for a special holiday. But just in case you wondered, here are some pretty universal days to choose from!

Most Popular Days to Get Engaged

Christmas Eve/Christmas Day

The saying goes that this is the most wonderful time of the year, and apparently it’s also the most romantic time as well! Especially when you think about dropping to one knee! The Christmas season is super romantic, but the combination of holiday cheer and tidings of joy are just the thing to get your significant other in the mood!

New Years Eve

There’s something about that chime of the bells at midnight, and the promise of a new year with the one you love that makes them want to commit! New Years Eve has long been a time for people to evaluate their lives and make changes, and what better way to kick off a new year than by proposing!

Valentine’s Day

This is considered the second most popular day to get engaged. And who could blame you, when you have a day completely devoted to the celebration of love! 

A survey conducted by Harpers Bazaar says that most men think that a Christmas Eve proposal is the way to go. In contrast, the majority of women think Valentines is the perfect date to pop the question.

Fourth Of July

When thinking about the most popular days to get engaged, Independence Day may not immediately come to mind. But think about it, most people have off of work and are on holiday. Plus, there are lots of fireworks going off, and they can definitely spark the passion between you two!

So that begs the question – when did you say yes?!
