Leap Day 29 February 2016.

Leap Day


Leap Day – to propose or not to propose, that is the question

Leap Days are needed to keep our calendar in alignment with the Earth’s revolutions around the Sun.

It takes the Earth 365.242199 days to circle once around the Sun. If we didn’t add a day on February 29 every 4 years, we would lose almost six hours every year. After only 100 years, our calendar would be off by approximately 24 days in relation to the seasons.

As this day only comes around every four years I feel as though I should do something radical today. But what?

It’s tradition for women to propose to their boyfriends on leap days but as my fiancé beat me to it 7 years ago I can’t do that.

So instead, I have decided
to (finally) book our wedding.

The next 12 months will be a whirling dervish of penny-pinching and organising so I had better keep my trusty Dairy Diary to hand – the budget planner and notes pages will be more valuable than ever!

Have you done anything different to commemorate leap day today?
