For those of us lucky enough to be born on a leap day it means an extra-special celebration that can only happen once every four years.
For the rest of us, here are some ideas for lucky things to do to take advantage of leap day.
Make It Count!
What would you do if you had one extra, unaccounted-for day? Well, even though we’ll still have to go to school and work, we can still celebrate a bonus day by doing one thing we never get a chance to do. So go bowling on a weeknight, get out all your art supplies and create a masterpiece, or cook everyone’s favorite food for dinner. Whatever you do, just make sure it’s not the same old routine.
Leap In Style
Get the family up early on the morning of leap day to go outside and give the day a proper welcome. Since it’s known as leap day, take a few minutes to see who can jump the highest in the family. Then go back inside and get ready for school. We don’t want to miss the bus again, do we?
Frogs are champion leapers so take your inspiration from them today. Wear green all over (or just a pair of green socks) and keep Leap Day fresh in your heart.
Say I Love You
Folk traditions throughout northern Europe hold that women can propose to men on Leap Day. Although times have changed and women don’t need to wait for Leap Day to suggest an engagement, take their example and let someone know you love them today – extra points if it’s not someone who already suspects that you do.
Happy Leap Day!
