Warning: This Tricky Christmas Card Proposal Will Make You Weep 

The irony is that the comedic relief you will experience while crying over this adorable proposal is how much the bride-to-be herself starts crying when she realizes what’s going on. It’s really sweet: She loses it!

And we can’t blame her. Her very clever boyfriend arranged for them to sit in the front of a family Christmas card picture, with family members wearing shirts that spelled out “Merry X-Mas”—at least for one shot—behind them. That way, she didn’t notice when they all switched around for the second shot until she saw the photo.

This is good. Enjoy:
