In 1288, the unmarried Queen Margaret of Scotland created a law which allowed women to propose on a leap-year day. However, things were not that simple, women had to wear a red petticoat to warn her fellow gentleman that she was on the prowl for a husband.


Proposing on a leap year is considered as good luck. It is believed that this luck would reduce the chances of divorce and endorse lifelong love.


Leap day babies are called Leapers or Leaplings.


It is widely believed that a leap year should not end in major purchases and distant trips. Even dying hair or changing hair-do is ill-advised. Speaking about changes of the workplace or starting up a business is also completely taboo.


The Church customarily bans certain dates for two love birds to tie the knot. According to Orthodox canons, people cannot take the oath of holy matrimony on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and before major holidays during Lent.
