Leap year

Postby PiF » Thu Feb 18, 2016 10:37 am

In the old days before labellitus took over...it was etiquette and manners that a man ask a woman for her hand in marriage

If however a lady wanted to ask a man for his hand in marriage, the convention was that once in every 4 years..a leap year..a lady could ask a man for his hand in marriage on the leap year date of the 29th of February

Now I know the old ways have largely been thrown in the bin but for those who still value a little bit of tradition and etiquette ...this year is a leap year...and the 29th could be a special day.

I had never heard of that before.
If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.

And if the man refuses, then he has to buy a present...wither a pair of gloves or a red flannel petticoat (yeh, that one's a bit of a mystery).

So you angling for one of us to make an offer to you PiF? I could do with a new pair of gloves :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
