Sharing: Leap year – propose him or not?!?

Learnt something new today..unique yet cute tradition (OMG…I felt like I’m so out-dated LOL)
marrymeToday, 29 Feb 2012, is a one of the leap day which is an extra day added during a leap year. It makes our days in a year become 366 instead of 365 ( indirectly we need to work another one day this year –_-“).
Here are some superstitious and belief for leap years:
  • According to Irish traditions, girl has a special privileges on this leap day (only happen once in every four years, so use it wisely lady :)). They can propose to their boyfriend (well nowadays there’s no diff whether who is going to propose first- but for myself, I still stick to old tradition). And the most interesting part is that if the man rejects the girl, they need to pay a PENALTY, such as:
    • In European countries (Denmark) : the man has to buy the girl 12 pairs of gloves so that the girl can wear the gloves to hide the embarrassment of not having an engagement ring
    • In Finland, the man has to buy the girl fabrics for a skirt
  • In  Greece, marriage in a leap year is considered unlucky so they always try to avoid to get married on that year
Personally myself would wait for a guy to do the proposal hahaha…and girl, let’s the guy do their part and we do our parts ♥♥♥
