Well ladies, it’s February 29th and that means that today is your one chance to propose to your man! (Hurry, you still have a few hours left!)
And if any of you gentlemen out there were proposed to today, you should be aware that the penalty for refusing a proposal can be serious. In Denmark apparently refusal must be compensated with 12 pairs of gloves (and I don’t think they mean of the rubber variety), and in Finland if you refuse a woman’s proposal you must buy her the fabric for a skirt! Read all about it here. So you might want to think twice before saying no!
