Happy Leap Year Day!

Veni, Vidi, Vici

It is I, Gaius Julius Caesar. I am here to remind you that you can thank me for today. That’s right. I made today possible. It was I that created this calender. It was I that made February 29th! Yes, Yes, I know I’m awesome.
Buffalo Calf Road – You know, the Mayan calendar was more accurate.
Caesar – But theirs ends this year. Mine doesn’t. Thus, mine is more awesome. For Leap Day…or whatever you “modern” people call it, I will reward myself with a Wendy’s Frosty. Suck it Mayans.

Besides, who wants to try to figure out where their friends birthdayis on THIS thing??

  4. Happy Leap Day!

    One interesting Leap Day legend goes back to the 5th Century when an Irish nun St Brigid of Kildare asked St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, to allow women to propose marriage after hearing complaints from single women whose boyfriends were slow at proposing. At first he granted the women the right to propose once every seven years, but at Brigid’s insistence, he allowed proposals every leap day.The tale suggests that St. Brigid at that instant dropped to one knee and proposed to St. Patrick, but he refused, kissing her on the cheek and offering her a silk gown in exchange. The Irish tradition therefore dictates that any man who refuses a woman’s leap-day proposal must give her a silk gown.

    Even though St. Brigid would of been just 9 or 10 years old when St. Patrick died in 461 A.D making this legend implausible, it’s an interesting fact nonetheless. I have no idea what color the silk gown had to be, but for me make it black. Always bet on black!
