Christmas is the most exciting time of year and December is the most popular month for Irish couples to get engaged. In fact, one in every five engagements in Ireland takes place during the festive month. By contrast, January is the least popular month to pop the question. 21% of people think that Christmas Day itself along with New Year’s Eve are the best days to propose.

Cheekily, two in five grooms-to-be go so far as to double the price they actually paid for it.
