The Captivating History of Leap Year Proposals

Travel back to 5th-century Ireland, where the tale of Leap Year Proposals begins. In this era of folklore and legends, St. Brigid of Kildare approached St. Patrick with a heartfelt concern – the arduous wait women endured for suitors to propose. Responding with a gesture of empowerment, St. Patrick declared that on Leap Day, women were granted the extraordinary opportunity to propose to their beloveds. This tradition, born from the desire to rewrite the rules of love, empowered individuals to shape their own destinies.
