Time to propose this leap year… for the women!

One story goes that in the 5th Century an Irish nun called St Bridget complained to St Patrick that women had to wait too long for their suitors to propose.
St Patrick suggested that women could have the opportunity to ask the question but only every four years.
Apparently women were also expected to have to wear either breeches or a scarlet petticoat to signal their intention!
