Happy Leap Day!!!!

 

Hey loves so today is a leap day a day that only comes around every four years.

A simple definition of a leap year is a year in which an extra day is added to the Gregorian calendar which is used by most of the world.

An ordinary year has 365 days. A leap year has 366 days. The extra day is added to the month of February. In an ordinary year, February has 28 days. In a leap year, it has 29 days. This extra day is called a leap day.

This day has always been a day of traditions folk lore and superstitions. For example according to an old Irish legend, or possibly history, St Brigid struck a deal with St Patrick to allow women to propose to men – and not just the other way around – every four years.

In some places, 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.

To me however the most interesting part of a leap day is the face that people born on February 29 are all invited to join The Honor society of Leap Year Day Babies!!!
