Happy Leap Day Everyone!
Leap Day Info
According to an old Irish legend, or possibly history, St Brigid struck a deal with St Patrick to allow women to propose to men every four years.
Leap day has been known as “Bachelors’ Day” for the same reason. A man was expected to pay a penalty, such as a gown or money, if he refused a marriage proposal from a woman on Leap Day.
In many European countries, tradition dictates that if a man refuses a woman’s proposal on February 29 he must buy her 12 pairs of gloves. Then she can hide her embarrassment of not having an engagement ring. During the middle ages there were laws governing this tradition.
People born on February 29 are all invited to join The Honor Society of Leap Year Day Babies.
Any special plans? I plan on sleeping LOL
