Move over St Valentine, Jesus is in town, and he's here to reclaim the eve of his birth as the most popular day for couples to pop the question.
A survey by Chillisauce.co.uk involving 7,000 people revealed that Christmas eve is the most popular day to propose, with 32% of people choosing that particular day. Valentine's Day isn't far behind though, with 30% of people also choosing that. Conversely, New Year's day and Boxing day lagged behind with 6 and 5% respectively.
Interestingly, there was a wide margin between which gender thought Christmas eve was a brilliant day to propose. 24% of men favoured it in comparison to 15% of women, while the reverse was true for Valentine's Day.
The research also delved into the type of proposals that people thought worked best. The vast majority (51%) felt that just saying 'will you marry me?' was enough, while only 6% preferred a cheesy song, dance or performance. (Thank Christ).
How to say no to a proposal also had a clear winner. 53% said being honest and saying bluntly 'no' was the best option, while on 6% suggested a cowardly 'say yes and then no in private afterwards'.
