“Wedding season traditionally runs throughout the summer months but it seems the winter is when proposals reach their peak,” travel company Chillisauce, said in a statement about the survey. “Romance is very much in the air during the festive season, with Christmastime being the busiest time of year for people getting down on one knee.”

The study found that 33 percent of men will be popping the question this Christmas, but that29 percent of women would rather be propsed to on Valentine’s Day or their anniversary.
