It’s Leap Day!
According to an old Irish legend, St Bridget struck a deal with St Patrick to allow women to propose to men every 4 years. Tradition holds they MUST accept.
In Scotland, it used to be considered unlucky for someone to be born on Leap Day, just like Friday 13th is considered an unlucky day by many. Persons born on leap day, February 29, are called “leaplings” or “leapers.
In Greece it’s said to be unlucky for couples to marry during a Leap Year, and especially on Leap Day.
