Happy Leap Day, friends! To celebrate, I give you this Q & A with Christopher all about this special day! These questions are coming to you courtesy of According to Laura Jean & Heavens to Betsy who host the Guys Behind the Blog monthly link up.
(1) This year is Leap Year – what are you going to do to celebrate?
We were planning to eat at a swanky restaurant downtown, but just found out last night that they won’t be open. So I’m not quite sure what we’ll do. Hopefully we’ll come up with something awesome!
(2) If you could create an obscure holiday, what would it be and why?
It would be a grill out day. Everyone would grill out and have friends and family over. We would play corn hole and bocce ball.
(3) Have you seen the movie Leap Year? If not, tell us about another romantic comedy you have seen.
Yeah, but I don’t really remember it. I have seen Meet the Parents and it awesome. I really liked all the awkward conversations. I secretly hope to be like the dad someday and do that to my future sons-in-law.
(4) Tradition has it that women are supposed to propose to their men on Leap Day. Would you have said yes if your girl popped the question?
Even though I’m probably a little bit of a traditionalist when it comes to proposals, I still would’ve said yes if she had asked because I loved her and knew I wanted to marry her long before I proposed anyway.
(5) If you had to have a special event take place on leap day, what would it be (ex: wedding, birthday, birth of your child, etc)?
Definitely my birthday. I would age four times slower.
(us not long after we got engaged)
Your turn, reader! What obscure holiday would you create? I’m thinking something where everyone goes to the beach and enjoys the sunshine!
Tell me friends, would you propose to your guy (or if you’re already married, would you have)? We got engaged when I was a senior in college and at that time, I don’t think I would have proposed to him. Mostly because the (private college in the South) culture we were in at the time put a lot of importance on the guy proposing and I never wanted him to feel that he had missed out. However, we had talked all about marriage and a future together long before we got engaged and I initiated nearly as many of those conversations as he did. So really, we both brought up the marriage thing and talked about the future before we got officially engaged. So the actual proposal was just icing on the we-already-knew-we-wanted-to-get-married cake. 😉
