Summertime may be the best time to go on your honeymoon, but there is no doubt that wintertime is the most romantic time to propose. After all, there’s a certain magic to the winter and the holiday season that makes everyone hopeful for good fortune in the new year. It’s a time to indulge in all the sweet things in life – both literally and figuratively. And nothing goes better with the sparkle of fresh fallen snow and glittering lights than a twinkling diamond engagement ring held by a man on one knee. Whether it’s for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or anywhere in between, there’s several reasons why wintertime is the most romantic time to propose.
A Time For Surprises
The winter is definitely a time for surprises, and the more pleasant the surprises, the better. There’s a reason why we exchange gifts on Christmas and Hannukah, receive Christmas bonuses, and tip extra heavy around the holidays. The cold of the winter can be rough, and we depend on those little heart-warming gestures to keep our spirits up when the temperature gets too low. Whether the surprise be a box of chocolates, a holiday card, or an unexpected cup of hot chocolate, it’s what keeps the wintertime magical in our hearts. And what could be better than a surprise proposal?
A Time For Diamonds
We all love to match our jewelry with our clothes, and there’s basically nothing that doesn’t look good with a diamond. However, diamonds do pair exceptionally well with certain winter apparel, such as white cashmere, delicate knits, black anything, and wool coats. Nothing puts the proverbial cherry on top of a killer winter ensemble like a diamond ring. Plus, with all the lights flashing everywhere, that diamond will be turning heads right and left.
A Time For Romance
More than anything, wintertime is the most romantic time to propose, because it’s the most romantic time of year. The winter months are when we slow down with all of the outdoor activities and extracurriculars and spend more time at home nesting. It’s when we get to spend time with our partners more intimately and get cozy together. Extended time spent snuggling on the couch together and making meals releases oxytocin in the brain, the very hormone that makes us feel love. Therefore, this is always the most romantic time of year, but it’s important to remember that there is more than one romantic time to propose. So don’t wait if you know how you feel.
