February 29 is a date that usually occurs every four years, and is called leap year day. This day is added to the calendar in leap years as a corrective measure, because the earth does not orbit around the sun in precisely 365 days.
In Britain, it is a tradition that women may propose marriage only on leap years. While it has been claimed that Saint Patrick or Brigid of Kildare in 5th century Ireland initiated the tradition, this is dubious, as the tradition has not been attested before the 19th century.
Traditionally its men who propose to women, but on a leap year the tables can be turned and women can propose to men.
