Happy Leap Day
Papa told me today that there is an old Irish legend that the girls could ask someone they liked to marry them on Leap Day. If the boy said no, he had to buy her 12 pairs of gloves so that she would have a pair to wear for each month of the year to hid the fact that she had no ring and was unmarried. He really got a big kick out of this story.
