    There's something about Christmas that feels decidedly romantic. Maybe it's all the twinkling lights and cozy feelings of being by a fire. Maybe it's that all your friends seem to get engaged around this time of year. Or, maybe it's because movies have been pushing the idea that Christmas and love go hand in hand for years now.
