The holidays have arrived and there’s no better time than now to propose. Jump-start the Christmas crowd and propose on Thanksgiving! Why, you ask? Well, in my opinion, there’s no better holiday to propose. Let me tell you why.
1. The family is together.
Thanksgiving is a time where everyone sits around the table to eat a fantastic meal, or maybe you sit in front of the football game, or eat outside– whatever your tradition is, it’s one where everyone is already planning on being together. What better way to propose than to have her surrounded by those most important to her, a family you’ll become a part of? Noted: Don’t propose in front of your family unless it’s a sure-thing and she’s already basically a part of it. It could get awkward, fast.
2. Your speech will write itself.
Rather than focusing on the things you love about her, why not focus on why you’re so thankful for her? This will be a different twist on the classic proposal, and it makes it easier to start your proposal and keep it a surprise because, hello, it’s thanksgiving! For all she knows, you’re just gushing over her. When you pull out that ring, or drop to one knee, that’s what will give it away.
3. It’s an amazing distraction.
Proposing at a potentially hazardous Thanksgiving dinner takes the focus off of family feuds and puts it on bringing the family together! While you may be bombarded with different opinions about wedding planning, it keeps people from fighting over stuff like gun control. It’s a win-win!
