On the British isles, it is a tradition that women may propose marriage

only on leap years.

 While it has been claimed that the tradition was initiated by

Saint Patrick or Brigid of Kildare in 5th century Ireland, this is dubious,

as the tradition has not been attested before the 19th century.[8]

Supposedly, a 1288 law by Queen Margaret of Scotland (then age five

 and living in Norway), required that fines be levied if a marriage

proposal was refused by the man; compensation ranged from a

kiss to £1 to a silk gown, in order to soften the blow.[9

] Because men felt that put them at too great a risk, the tradition

 was in some places tightened to restricting female proposals to

 the modern leap day, February 29, or to the medieval (bissextile) leap day,

 February 24.

According to Felten: “A play from the turn of the 17th century,

‘The Maydes Metamorphosis,’ has it that ‘this is leape year/women

wear breeches.’

 A few hundred years later, breeches wouldn’t do at all:

Women looking to take advantage of their opportunity to pitch woo

were expected to wear a scarlet petticoat—fair warning, if you will.”[10]

In Denmark, the tradition is that women may propose on the

 bissextile leap day, February 24, and that refusal must be compensated

 with 12 pairs of gloves.[11]

In Finland, the tradition is that if a man refuses a woman’s proposal

on leap day, he should buy her the fabrics for a skirt.[citation
