Our family spent Christmas in Missouri this year and we were witness to a marriage proposal that ended in a 'no'. It happened in the resort restaurant area and it was pretty obvious what was going on, especially when she said no and stormed out of the restaurant. My son Evan asked why she was so mad, to which we had no answer. The jilted guy sat there for a few minutes, I'm sure going over his execution, which was extremely awkward at best and we couldn't help but feel bad for him. I even sent a drink over to him.

Yesterday, I found this video of a guy who turned a 'Merry Christmas' family picture into a very cool 'marry me' proposal. If only the guy I saw had done something like this, he'd be much better off. Holidays and public places can be tough situations for proposals, so choose your moment carefully.
