Can Holiday: Proposal Day – March 20


John Michael O’Loughlin

How to Celebrate

The idea behind Proposal Day is to not just propose to the first person you see, but to someone you’ve known for a long time. O’Loughlin states, “In fact, the relationship should be so close, long-standing, and emotionally intimate that your marriage proposal will not be a total shock to the person being proposed to — it’ll feel like a natural progression of the relationship to them!”. Depending on where you are in your relationship, this day, which happens to fall on the Vernal Equinox, could mean you propose, start talking about marriage, start thinking about marriage, or if you aren’t in a relationship, you can interfere with someone you know that needs some encouragement to take it to the next level.

To honor this day we are featuring the 2003 Pepsi Lord of the Rings can from Belgium, featuring Frodo. On this can we have Frodo, played by Elijah Wood, holding up the ring in a pose that looks like he is proposing.

Happy Proposal Day (3/20)!
