Some of our weird costume suggestions for Leap Year Costumes include:
- 11 Lords (are leaping) – ideal if you have a large group of friends who all want to go as the same thing!
- Frogs – look at our range of animal masks
- Kangaroos – all animals that can leap
- Religious Costume – for a ‘leap of faith’
- Astronaut costume -’that’s 1 small step for man, a giant leap for mankind’
- Walk in holding a magnifying glass ‘look before you leap’
- Dress up as a bride – you never know who you’l lmeet at the party!
Okay, we know some of these are really bad, but do you have any other ideas? Go on, we’d love to hear from you.
We would like to say Happy Birthday to everyone celebrating their birthday TODAY. You share your birthday with some illustrious names such as actor Joss Ackland (b. North Kensington – 1928) and Italian composer Gioachino Rossini (b. Pesaro, Italy – 1792).
At p&f we always think it’s tough for those who were born on February 29th. What do they do about birthdays? Only have them once every four years? (well that’s one way to keep young) or perhaps celebrate on February 28th or March 1st? The ultimate unfortunates must have been anyone born the day after Leap Year in 1712 because in that year, and that year only, Sweden declared a February 30th in order to regulate its calendar. A single birthday – talk about a once in a lifetime event! For the more ‘normal’ leap year babies, we understand there are some who celebrate birthdays on either of the alternate dates and some who have a two-day celebration! For those of you who have not got a reason to celebrate today, what are you going to do with this extra day? Of course for the ladies there is the tradition that on Leap Year, they are allowed to pop the marriage proposal, so if that’s your plan, good luck and best wishes!
