Leap Year!

Finn at occidental courtyardebruary is the shortest month of the year but full of very exciting happenings…Ground Hog Day, Chinese New Year, Valentine’s Day, President’s Day… and this year, Leap Year! This happens every four years. There are several traditions and customs associated with this day.

Perhaps the best known is that a woman is able to propose to the man she loves. Dubbed Sadie Hawkins Day, the tradition began in a comic strip, “L’il Abner”. To read the entire history, click on the link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sadie_Hawkins_Day

Babies born on February 29 somehow get cheated out of a “real” birthday for 3 years until the next Leap Year. Some choose to celebrate the day before while others are content to celebrate the day after. These Leap Year babies have been referred to as “leaplings”. If you are a Leap Year baby, come celebrate your very special day at the Inn.
