Soldier Enlists Santa Claus to Help Propose to Girlfriend (VIDEO)

military proposalWith the inevitable stress the upcoming holidays are bound to cause, I think a no-strings-attached, feel-good story is in order this Tuesday afternoon, wouldn't you say? Okay, good. Here we go ...

Angela Hines thought she was just out enjoying another annual parade of holiday lights in her hometown of Waterville, Maine. And in a way, she was. Except the end of the parade was a bit different for her this year. See, at the event's closing, Angela was called up on to a float -- by Santa Claus himself -- where she was met by her boyfriend, Bradd Guguere. (I think you know where I'm going with this ...) Bradd, who's stationed in Arizona and was home for only two days, got down on his knee and asked Angela for her hand in marriage.

I'll give you one guess as to what she said.


You're just going to have to watch the adorable video to find out ...

Awww. See? I bet you didn't even realize that a good old-fashioned, sweet proposal story was what you needed today, now did you? I've gotta say, for me, personally, this was necessary. I almost -- almost -- didn't watch this because I'm, you know, sooo busy with work and life and blah blah blah, but let me tell you: So glad I did.

Not to get all corny on you (totally going to get all corny on you), but isn't this kind of what the holidays are all about? Love and family and friends? Forget about Black Friday, Cyber Monday, or Magenta Saturday (yes, that's a real thing), this is the true spirit of Christmas right here.

Okay, I need to stop now. I'm actually getting a little cheesy for my own taste here. (But it's just so dang cute!)

How great is this? How did your husband propose?
