Leap Year

Standard

Today is February 29th. Happy Leap Year everyone! I don’t know how many of you have seen the movie Leap Year starring Amy Adams…

But, if you haven’t I will explain why it is important. In the movie, Anna- the main character- goes to Ireland to propose to her boyfriend on this date. You see in Ireland there is a tradition where, on a leap year, a woman can propose to a man.

I love this tradition, because over here in America if that happened very often, it would be criticized. Here it is thought that the man always has to do the asking. Granted, it is the way we girls would prefer it, but sometimes you just have to take matters intto your own hands. I’m not saying it should always happen, but I think we’d all be a little better off if we accepted it when it did happen, without making fun of the man or something.
