A Leap Day Tradition
The one day of the year on which, traditionally, women can propose to men. It was considered that, as the day also had no legal status. It was reasonable to assume that tradition had no status, so women took advantage of this and proposed to the man they wanted to marry.
This tradition goes back to an old Irish legend concerning St. Patrick and St. Bridget in the 5th Century.
In the 5th century, a nun by the name of St. Bridget, petitioned St. Patrick on behalf of all women in that they have a more active role in choosing their husbands. As a result of this request, women were allowed to propose to men once every four years.
Today marks the 5th anniversary for the GeoCachingNuts (GCN) couple (Yes, they were married on leap day). Leap Day is that one day many cachers need to fill their yearly calendar out, so let's celebrate together.
Baiting our date begins at 530pm.
