Was there something in the water this holiday season? Was Jared having an extra big sale on diamonds in the greater Los Angeles area, or is love simply winning over all the hardened hearts of Tinseltown?

Whatever it is, we have witnessed an overdose of celebrity engagements this week -- from Hugh Hefner, who continues to give us the willies and forces us to try to divide 84 by 24 in our heads, to LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian to Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth. Oh, and how can we forget Natalie Portman! Engaged and pregnant. Double whammy. One of the reasons for so much popping of the question, believes US Weekly's Rebecca Bienstock, is that celebrities really are just like us, and normal people tend to get engaged at the holidays. Just check your Facebook feed this week.

"Just like us, they want to get engaged over the holidays when they're around their families so they can celebrate, or like LeAnn and Eddie they want to immediately go on vacation and enjoy the recent engagement," Bienstock says. "Plus it's easier, you can combine the holiday present with the engagement ring."
