If you're planning to pop the big question on Christmas Eve you’re not alone, as new figures show that it is the most popular day of the year to propose. 

While you may assume that Valentine’s Day is when your respective other half are most likely to put a ring on it, it is in fact the fourth most popular day after Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve, according to Facebook

The social media powerhouse, which has more than one billion members and counting, calculated the figure by analysing 2.6 million users and how their relationships statuses changed.

The findings match a recent survey of 10,000 people by experience website Chillisauce

However, women would still prefer to get engaged on Valentines Day.

The website's poll found that 40 per cent of people believe that the Christmas period is the most popular time for wedding proposals.

The night before Christmas meanwhile topped the list for the best day to surprise a partner with a proposal. 

However, while many appear to agree that Christmas Eve is a romantic time to pop the question, 29 per cent of women surveyed said they would prefer to be asked on Valentine’s Day, The Evening Standard reported. 

A further fifth of women would prefer to get engaged on the anniversary of the day they met their other half, according to The Huffington Post.
