It makes sense, we guess; you’ll already be dolled up in your glad rags with a glass of bubbly in hand, so why not make the occasion extra special by getting down on one knee and heralding in the new year with a brand new fiancé. 

If you can’t wait for December to get down on one knee, bonfire night is also a popular proposal date, with 16% of people saying they’d like the big question to be set to a backdrop of glittering fireworks – pretty romantic, if you ask us!

While it may shock you, 7% of people said they’d like their proposal to take place on Halloween – at least they’d be guaranteed a treat rather than a trick!
