Will you merry me?

Welcome to our annual discussion of a very important holiday question.

Is it cheesy to get engaged on Christmas?

TresSugar outlines some obvious pros and cons. On the positive side, you'll never forget the date. Also, it's likely you're surrounded by friends and family -- making the celebration even more special.

That is, assuming everything goes as planned.

And there, my friends, lies one of the biggest drawbacks to a Christmas proposal. If things go badly, one of the happiest holidays is ruined. FOREVER.

Another drawback? Christmas is already a calendar holiday, meaning you'll have to share your special day with lots of people.

Initially, I was totally adverse to the idea of a Christmas engagement. But last year, I had a few friends get engaged on Christmas and it seemed to only heighten the specialness of an already special holiday.

Where do you stand?
