Hollywood has given up many classic movies – Gone with the Wind, Titanic, and The Godfather to name a few. It isn’t hard to convince my husband to take me to the movies for blockbusters such as these. It is quite another matter when the movie is a chick flick filled with sappy romance. Which is why I found it so surprising that he suggested we see the film Leap Year when it came out in 2010.
An Ireland-born Irishman, my darling husband found the movie hilarious. It seems this was not just a piece of Hollywood magic but based on an actual Irish tradition which allows women to propose marriage to their boyfriends on February 29. Who knew!
So sit back, enjoy the movie trailer, and then polish up your proposal speech, girls.
Happy Leap Day!

Every movie has at least one memorable line. Well, they should, anyway. Some become classics and endure forever. On the way home from family movie night, my husband and I tried to come up with a line from the movie we had just seen that was worth remembering. After much debate, we decided nothing was worth changing on our Top Ten Favorite Quote list:
- Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.
- I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse.
- Houston, we have a problem.
- Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.
- Here’s looking at you, kid.
- Go ahead, make my day.
- May the Force be with you.
- Say ‘hello’ to my little friend.
- You talkin’ to me?
- You had me at ‘hello’
