With leap day approaching I can’t help but think of the amazing 30 Rock episode in which leap day is celebrated by everyone and the mascot of the day is Leap Dave Williams. A sage like tooth fairy type character that dresses like a dandy and has gills…? Yes I am remembering that correctly. It also made me wonder what the real leap day traditions and folk lore are.
The only thing I could find was about Bachelors Day. A time when a woman can ask a single man to marry her. Then he has to give her money or by her a dress. If he refuses he has to by her 12 pairs of gloves… I am not making this up. I swear. The gloves are so the woman can hide the fact that she wasn’t successful on Bachelors Day.
Well I will not be proposing to my feller on tommorow, but I will take advantage of my extra day to bring my 2016 book count up to 18!
