For some people, Leap Day is more than an extra day to sit inside and watch Netflix. ​Cosmopolitan reported that since the fifth century, Leap Day in Ireland has been a day where women are free to propose to their men without judgment. (The tradition was poorly documented in the 2010 movie Leap Year.) This year, Canadian resident Kieran Gregg took advantage of her Irish ancestry to propose to her boyfriend and father of her two daughters, Dan Cupples. In another reversal of tradition, Gregg took a very long time to pop the question by sending Cupples on a scavenger hunt that Cupples shared on Reddit.
