What About Leap Year?

I’m seriously not aware that today is the leap day. I know about the leap year but didn’t give any attention to it because I thought it was just an ordinary day. Well, it was for me. Until I saw the posts of other bloggers about it and asking what are the things that we did today. Since I’m not aware, I did nothing. I don’t think it’ll affect my remaining days and months for this year so I didn’t bother.

Anyways, for you who doesn’t know about this leap thingy. I have some facts and trivia for you to read.

  • Leap year only occurs every 4 years.
  • Once it’s a leap year, it will automatically adds another day in the month of February. We usually have 28 as the last day of February but when it is a leap year, we have until February 29.
  • Babies that are being born on February 29 are called leaplings or leapers.
  • Find baby coupons and buy that leapling a special toy.
  • If you are a leap baby, you will going to choose to celebrate your birthday on either February 28 or March 1.
  • In Scotland, if you are born on February 29 then you are consider as bad luck.
  • In Greece, it is unlucky to set your wedding date on February 29 or to the entire leap year.
  • In some other countries, women are allowed to propose to their boyfriends and if the guy refuses they will be force to pay a penalty, either gowns or 12 pair of gloves.

About the last trivia, I don’t think it’s just fair. It’s like you’re forcing a guy to marry you. Because if he refuses, he will pay a penalty. What if he’s not serious with your relationship? Then you will end up marrying the wrong guy? Anyway, it’s just for fun. I don’t think they’re still following this tradition. I respect that. 🙂

Happy Valentines Day! (2012)

Happy Valentines Day! Oh no, it’s not valentines yet. I’m so excited not because I have a date(I don’t have a date. =D) but because I think this will be the last valentines day that we’re going to have(2012!!). Nah, just kidding! 😀 If this is really the last v-day then pity me, coz I’ll never have the chance to have a fancy date with Mr. Right anymore. 🙁 I blame you Mr Right! Why you’re so late? I’ve been waiting here for 100 years! Are you still alive? Haha!

Srsly, I’m tired of this thing. I’ll just wait and trust the Lord. I know He’s planning the best love story of my life and I’ll just have to wait for it. If you’re going to ask me, I want to experience a lovely-valentine-date with my mr. right – with flowers, chocolates, heart-shaped balloons and take note I want this to be a surprise date for me. Are there still guys who’ll do this for their girlfriends or wives?

How about you? How are you gonna spend your valentine’s day for this 2012? and How do you want it to happen?(just in case it would come true)
