Leap Year comes once every four years on February 29th. However, in looking at a calendar, the next leap year day which falls on a Thursday is 2024. That’s entirely too long to wait for some leap year marriage proposals!
Now, there’s a tradition birthed in the United Kingdom which allows women to propose to men – but, only on leap year day! So, these women are taking advantage of it! (Note: This is not an endorsement by Heather and myself that we think women should be proposing to men for marriage – there are a good number of reasons why the man is to be the one to propose. We’ll write a blog post about it later. ~smile~)
