Today is Leap Day

Dear Diary:

Any year divisable by 4, gives us an extra day in February so today is it!  It is Leap Day.

In some countries, it's a tradition that women may propose marriage on leap years.  This doesn't seem such a bad idea but what if the guy you're proposing to refuses?  It seems there are penalties for that.
In Scotland, fines were assigned to the man ranging from a kiss, to money, to a silk gown.  In Denmark, a refusal may be compensated with the gift of 12 pairs of gloves, while in Finland, the man must buy the woman enough fabric to make a skirt.

In Greece, it's just unlucky to be married in a leap year.

Now where's my lucky man?

Good Night for now.
