If you live in a snowy climate, let the magic of winter enhance your proposal this New Year’s Eve. There’s more than one way to use the snow to your advantage during a proposal. You could write the message in a snow bank and have your loved one see the question before they see you kneel down to propose. You could also use a snowman to deliver your message. Consider having the snowman hold a “will you marry me” sign or having him hold a scroll with a heartfelt message. The options are endless.
