Original Christmas Gifts

Why is it, that so many people feel the need to get engaged during the Holiday season? Why is that the #1 thing expected by a couple that's been dating for a time. Everyone is always like "Oh, is HE going to propose to her this Christmas???" or "I bet his parents are coming to town so he can propose to her!!!"

Give me a freaking break! You may think my little outburst is jealousy, just because I don't happen to have a boyfriend right now...I'm not freaking jealous!! Stop looking at me like that! I honestly don't want to get engaged during a holiday. Come up with something original people!

Why must people always follow everyone else? Why can't we think of something original and personal? Rather than, proposing on Christmas night, Christmas Eve, New Years Eve....blah blah blah! You get the idea.

Anyway, I had a Merry Christmas! I didn't get proposed to or anything "fancy" like that, BUT, I did get a great DVD, "The Dirty Dozen" one of the best movies ever made! No, really, I love it...I promise!

No, no. Proposing online is so last week. You need to wait until RevRee gets more snow on her yard so you can pee "Will you Marry me?" in the freshly fallen snow. That way, if she says no you can blame it on the dog.

I think the guy proposes so he can remember that he did it on Christmas and if he brings that up while forgetting their anniversary yet again, he may be forgiven if he brings up when they got engaged. That's just my opinion.

I agree. I'm sure these people feel pressured to do so though. I say buy everyone Amex Gift cards and let them shop without worrying where the money is coming from.

Everytime I come across Dirty Dozen on TV I always stop to watch a bit - great movie.

I agree. I would propose on a Friday night. I'd tell her I was going to take her out to try out some new place to eat and then lay it on her (the proposal). I'd first stand up and get the attention of everyone in the room (it would have to be a small place), then I'd go on to tell them just how much this woman in front of me means to me - all the while looking directly into her eyes. Then I'd finish on one knee with the ring.

I'd propose to you, but I'd try really hard to go gay first.

Rain, I'm still in shock about Dyck proposing to me. During the holidays and all, it's just such a surprise!

Dyck, if I marry we get to make a few babies?

This is so sudden... I mean, It seems like I just found you commenting on my blog only days ago...

YES! YES! I would be proud to be called Mr. Revree.

When can you move to Clearwater? LOL!

Really. I can't myself getting married again so the garbage I said before is what I should have done.

I think my friend may have gotten engaged on Christmas. I haven't heard from her though.... I guess we aren't friends. OK I don't even really know her but she smiled at me once and she is hot. Ok she isn't really hot but she has all her original teeth....except for like 3 of them but that's it!

I totally see where you're coming from, HOWEVER, I was engaged on Christmas Eve and it was the perfect time for me. Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year, all my family gets together and it's so special. My beaux knew that and chose to propose in front of everyone I loved so dearly on my favorite holiday. It could not have been more wonderful or memorable.

I was one of those sheep people who got engaged on Christmas Eve, but in my defense it was kind of romantic. I had to work that night (actually 1am-9am, Im a police officer in town and we don't get holidays off) but my Leut. let me go home early so I could watch my kids open their presents when they got up on Christmas morning. I came home in full uniform, brought her over underneath the tree, got down on a knee and proposed.

Ok thinking back now yeah it was corny but it did the trick. LOL

If "Drop your drawers and I'll be yours," qualifies as a proposal, then count me in.
