It's Leap Day! Propose to your man. Or not.


Today is an extra day for us.



What will you do with your extra day?

Ladies, one thing you could do is...

propose to your man.

Or not.


But really...

I attempted some Leap Day research the other day. I was looking for folklore, mythology, any bizarre info I could find on Leap Day.


Leap Day is the day where women can
propose to men.

Yup.

True story.

Why would we want to?

I don't know.


Apparently legend has it that St. Bridget protested to St. Patrick
on behalf of all women the unfairness of having to wait for a man to propose.

The two negotiated.

It was decided that one out of every 4 years, a woman would be allowed to propose to a man...so it was settled that it would be Leap Day.

Upon this resolution, it happened to be a Leap Year, so Bridget got down on one knee
and popped the question to Patrick.

He said no.

Patrick gave her a kiss and a silk gown to make her feel better.

Really?

I guess he had other priorities like driving the snakes out of Ireland?
