Just a side note if you were born on February 29, you are called a “leapling”. Sometimes they are called a “leap-year baby”. Usually, on a non-leap year, they will celebrate their birthday either the day before (February 28) or the day after (March 1). Some legality of the day comes in different countries, like when you turn 18 or 21, usually it is March 1, not February 28, on years that are not a Leap Year.

Another strange thing was women could only propose on Leap Day. If the man refused he had to buy her like 12 pairs of gloves or something crazy like that. I am sure there are many other crazing things about this day too. I guess that is why in Ireland and the United Kingdom is it known as Bachelor’s Day.
