Today is Leap Year Day. It’s our human attempt to fix things and make the calendar all neat and tidy.....although in reality, it is just a confusing day that comes around every four years.
But today, for one day only, you have an extra 24 hours.
What are you going to do with it?
I will tell you what i am NOT going to do with this extra day.....
There is a tradition that Leap Year Day, women can propose to their boyfriends. It is believed this tradition was started in 5th century Ireland when St. Bridget complained to St. Patrick about women having to wait for so long for a man to propose. According to legend, St. Patrick said the yearning females could propose on this one day in February during the leap year.......the rules of courtship are quite different these days (and much less strict)...thank goodness!
Anyway, today, February 29, 2012, i will not be proposing marriage to anyone! lol. i think i am pretty much done in that department.
Happy Leap Year Day!
