According to an Irish tradition that dates back to the fifth century, the rules of engagement are reversed on this day and women can ask their man for his hand in marriage. The whole tradition started when St. Bridget complained to St. Patrick about how long some women had to wait for a man to propose to them. His solution? Let women propose one day every four years…February 29.
So, ladies, would you take the leap and propose to your man?
