Have you been thinking about proposing to your significant other, but are still trying to figure out when the best time is to do it? Well, we’ve got the answer for you! That’s right–we vote for Thanksgiving Day! If you were thinking of picking Christmas, then think again! Everyone picks Christmas. Thanksgiving is much better. Why? It’s the day to show appreciation for good things in your life, you can propose in front of close friends and family (if you want to), you’ll be able to share the good news at all of the holiday gatherings to follow, and you’ll have time to book a summer wedding.
Thanksgiving Is The Day to Show Appreciation
Not all people celebrate Christmas, but nearly every American celebrates Thanksgiving. While everyone’s holiday traditions may be different, Thanksgiving has always been touted as the universal day to show appreciation for the good things we have in our lives. If you’re ready to pop the question, then you must be in love. Could there possibly be a better day to thank your boyfriend or girlfriend for inspiring this feeling in you? We don’t think so! Proposing on Thanksgiving Day says this all and more! So, in honor of Turkey Day, tell your lover how thankful you are to have them in your life–they’re sure to be speechless!
You Can Do It In Front of Family & Friends (If You Want To)
Look, we understand that public proposals aren’t for everyone. There’s nothing wrong with proposing to your girl or boy friend on a hiking trail, in the park, or at a private dinner. Still, if you did want to share the moment with your friends and family, then Thanksgiving dinner is the ideal time to do it. Typically, the people you would want to witness it will be there. If you do want to go this route, you should be very confident that that they will say yes. If you are confident, then you have 2 options: tell a select few guests, or don’t tell anyone at all. If you want someone to take a picture or video, then spill the beans to at least one person that you can really trust. If you want it to be a complete surprise, then all the power to you! Everyone present will remember the moment for the rest of their lives.
You Can Share The Good News At All The Holiday Events to Follow
There’s a good chance that certain people won’t be able to make it to Thanksgiving. Some people live too far away, and others may have prior arrangements to share the day with their significant other’s family that year. Fortunately, you’re likely to see some of these people at Christmas, Hanukkah, or New Year’s; therefore, you’ll get a chance to share the proposal memories with them at one (or all) of those gatherings.
You’ll Have Enough Time to Pick a Summer Wedding Date
Many weddings happen during summertime–and for good reason: it’s warm, uplifting, and a time when most people take time off from work anyway. If you get engaged on Thanksgiving Day, you’ll have enough time to start looking at summer wedding dates.
