From time to time images are mysteriously deleted by Photofuckit, I cannot stop this. Whenever possible, I will do my best to alter entries with missing images.

Sadie Hawkins Day
Leap Day, February 29 -- also known as Sadie Hawkins day -- is traditionally a womanís day to ask a man out or even propose marriage (but thatís not to leave the men out!). This custom started long before the comic Líil Abner made Sadie Hawkins day a popular idea in the 1930ís. It reportedly began in Ireland in the 5th century when St. Bridget convinced St. Patrick to allow one special day that a woman could propose. If the man refused, he was to be fined. (Incidentally, Bridget proposed to Patrick and he said no Ö and we donít know if he paid a fine :-).

Some 1,600 years later, there are no fines (whose idea was it to stop that?), but women still have this day every 4 years set aside to profess their love.
