Welcome to 2024!

It’s not just any old year—it’s a leap year! That means we get an extra day of excitement at the end of February, as we drive into this unique and promising year together.

You know, leap years come with all sorts of quirky superstitions and fascinating traditions in different cultures. Some people believe the added day brings good luck, while others view it with a tinge of scepticism.

Imagine being born on 29th February—what do you think? People call those special babies “leap day babies” or “Leaplings,” and they only get to have a proper birthday party every four years.

But in Scotland, it’s thought that babies born on leap day might have a tough life ahead—how strange is that?

Now, here’s an interesting tradition from Ireland: women can propose to their partners on leap day. (Sounds a bit old-fashioned, doesn’t it?)

Some folks think it’s unlucky to get married during a leap year. They believe that marriages on leap day often end in divorce.

Whether you embrace these superstitions or debunk them, the most important thing is to stay optimistic and open to change.

So, let’s kick off this leap year with a big leap of enthusiasm and curiosity! Are you ready for an exciting journey through 2024?

Now, here’s a question for you: What quirky customs do you know for the leap year?
