Happy March!

Happy March everyone! I can’t believe where the year is going! 

With 2016 being a leap year and yesterday being 29th February, there is a tradition that on this day women can propose to men. It is thought that St Brigid made a deal with St Patrick because she felt that women had to wait too long for a man to propose. St Patrick decreed that women could propose on one day in February during a leap year. Any man that declined was thought to have paid a fine, ranging from a kiss to a pair of gloves. 

So did any of you ladies propose to your man?
