Leap Day 2012

According to an old Irish legend, or possibly history, St Bridget struck a deal with St Patrick to allow women to propose to men – and not just the other way around – every 4 years. This is believed to have been introduced to balance the traditional roles of men and women in a similar way to how Leap Day balances the calendar.  
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. In many European countries, especially in the upper classes of society, tradition dictates that any man who refuses a woman's proposal on February 29 has to buy her 12 pairs of gloves. The intention is that the woman can wear the gloves to hide the embarrassment of not having an engagement ring. During the middle ages there were laws governing this tradition.
Leap Day is such a special day. Like every year, we do not have to go to school on 29 Feb. But on Leap Day, we have to go to school ._. The people who are born on the 29 Feb, are going to celebrate their birthday once more after four years :3

On such a special day, I was in school and I went straight home. Celeste was right, I should spend this special day in a special way. But nothing. NOTHING DDD: I should have gone out with Yu Sheng for a movie today instead of Saturday. But whatever. While everyone else is having fun on this special occasion, I celebrate it in my own very special way;

Anw did any lady propose today? I really want to know someone who did. Share with me how it went! >.<
