Secret Switch Turns Family Christmas Photo Into Surprise Marriage Proposal

VIDEO: Christmas Card Becomes Marriage Proposal

Christmas is certainly a time to spend with those you love.

And Tyne Owen, from Australia decided the holiday season was exactly the right time to prove just how much he loved his girlfriend of four years, Jamie, by planning a secret proposal with her entire family.

On Christmas Eve the happy couple, along with many of Jamie's relatives, were gathering around the tree for their annual family photo adorned in festive T-shirts to spell out "Merry Xmas."

But completely unbeknownst to Jamie, there was a subtle switch of some of the letters standing behind her to now spell out "Marry Me" just in time for the picture to be snapped.

After taking the shot, Owen's girlfriend runs over to look at the photo and realizes the holiday message had changed quite a bit. As she finally began to realize what was happening, she turned around to find her boyfriend on bended knee with ring in hand.

Once the initial shock and happy tears wore off, Jamie said "Yes," and undoubtedly celebrated one of the best Christmas presents of her life.
