If you’re thinking of popping the question over the next few months, you’ve come to the right place. This month, we’re celebrating all the best Philadelphia proposals to get you in the “I do” spirit. Why? Well, we love a good proposal, after all. But more to the point: The period between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day is traditionally one of the more popular times to get engaged — thanks, of course, to all the mistletoe and merriment. And we’re celebrating the occasion this year by dubbing it “Proposal Season” here in Philadelphia.
