That in Ireland, Leap year has been a traditional time wherein women can propose marriage to the man they love.
Actually, I only learned about this when I saw the movie, which later on turned out to be one of my favorite romantic movie, which also carry the same title, Leap Year.
Well.. as far as I could remember, am still the same traditional and conservative Denise that I know. I would still prefer the guy to propose on his knee and ask my parents for my hand in marriage. Ain't it romantic?
And, since I'm also too curious about the history of this Leap Year tradition in Ireland, you may like to click the link below:
And before I end this blog entry, I would like to grab this opportunity since it's not every year that we get the chance to see this date February 29 in our calendars. So, CONGRATULATIONS to my best friend, a very very good friend indeed, my college barkada, a family and a soulmate, Ms. Erlou Valera Salunat for passing the November 2011 Bar Exams. And to her boyfriend, Mr. Chillon Dion Collado who's been a part of our barkada ever since they got together, CONGRATULATIONS to you both.
Attorney na kayo, PRAISE GOD! :)
