The Christmas proposal is a proposal that can get a little help from the "movement of the stars".

Do you think that proposing on Christmas is "the right day to propose" because "the atmosphere in the city is the most romantic of the year"?

Christmas is probably the three most proposing days in the world. (3 days!)

These survey results...

According to a recent large-scale American survey, 15% of women and 24% of men said "Christmas Eve" was the best date to propose. 10% of women and 9% of men support "Christmas day". "Boxing Day (the day after Christmas)" is supported by 5% of both women and men. Boxing Day is chosen by those who work in the service industry and cannot take a day off on "Christmas Day".

Approximately 30% of women and 40% of men believe that Christmas is the best time of the year to propose.

On the other hand, 30% of men and women consider the anniversary or birthday of their first meeting to be the best timing, the same rate as Christmas. Just as many couples choose their anniversary as the perfect day to propose, Christmas is the perfect time to propose.

Advantages of "Christmas proposal": Does this Christmas proposal have any "special power" as a "special day"?

The survey was conducted in the United States, but just as Halloween is now enjoyed all over the world, Santa Claus and Christmas trees are loved by everyone around the world. If you do a global survey, it will probably prove to be the day of the year with the most proposals, all over the world.

It's a nice day. Proposals are held all over the world.

I'll take a detour and see.

Is "Christmas" an old tradition that has become a custom celebrated all over the world?

It may seem surprising that Christmas, which is celebrated all over the world today, is newer than "Cinderella's Glass Slipper" and can be said to be a human culture born after the world was connected by "communication technology". It is.

Today's Christmas was born in the 19th century, the same 19th century when "Cinderella" became loved all over the world and even became a subject of research.

Santa Claus with a plump white beard lives in the North Pole... There is a toy factory in the North Pole, and he delivers toys from the North Pole in a flying sleigh pulled by reindeer...

The present image of Santa Claus was created nearly 10 years after Perry arrived.

The year Sakamoto Ryoma finally left the domain.

The reindeer and flying sleigh are slightly older, 1820s inventions. In Japan, Siebold came to Nagasaki.

The reindeer and flying sleigh are from Moore's poem The Nightmare Before Christmas. The image of Christmas today is fairly recent.

Thomas Nast is the inventor of the North Pole Santa Claus.

The North Pole, where the toy factory is located, became Santa Claus' base because it does not belong to any country and is unrelated to politics. Mr. Thomas Nast, who came up with this idea, was a newspaper caricaturist and newspaper reporter who drew funny faces of politicians.

It is said that the fat white beard of Santa Claus was inspired by his grandfather in Thomas Nast's hometown of Germany, and the warm coat and thick belt were inspired by his childhood memories of the St. Nicholas festival.

The reason why Mr. Nast chose the North Pole as the location of Santa's toy factory is that the North Pole is a symbol of peace that does not belong to any country for humankind, in other words, it is a symbol of peace for everyone. I'm here.

It is precisely because of this idea that it has been loved by people all over the world.

Change your perspective. Around this time, what was happening with "technical innovation" was telegraph cables. It was a time when the world was connected by telegraph cables. In 1871 (Meiji 4), Japan was connected to Europe and the Americas by telegraph communication through submarine cables.

The image of Christmas, which was born in an era when the world began to connect in real time, became a major year-end event in Japan in the early 20th century, 30 or 40 years later.

I believe that the popularity of Perrault's stories "Cinderella or the Glass Slipper" and "Christmas" all over the world is largely due to this technological innovation.

We believe that "Cinderella," "Glass Slippers," and "Christmas" were popular, loved, and established cultures around the world long before the Beatles.

Like the Beatles, pure, loved by people all over the world, everyone's habit is "Christmas".

The Christmas proposal that people all over the world love and enjoy is perfect.

Today, on the same day together,

Millions of people around the world may be proposing
