Man proposes via holiday light display
NORWICH, Conn. (AP) - December 21, 2011 (WPVI) -- 'Tis the season for a Connecticut man to propose to his girlfriend using a holiday light display.
Jeremy Wilcox tells the Norwich Bulletin newspaper he and his mother spent about two hours putting the words "Will you marry me?" in lights across a fence at the family home, which has traditionally been decorated with elaborate holiday scenes during the Christmas season.
He popped the question to Elizabeth Caron on Dec. 10 by lighting up his proposal as she was viewing the decorations.
He asked Caron to close her eyes while he plugged in the lights. When she opened them, he was on one knee holding the engagement ring.
She said yes.
They haven't set a wedding date.
