Given that this day only comes once every four years, I thought I'd share some important information about Leap Year.

Traditionally, it's when women are meant to propose to their men. Being a Smart Alec, I thought I would link that theme with some anagrams for "Leap Year."

Ale Payer - Well, all those women who are going to propose are probably going to need some Dutch courage i.e. Ale, plus they have to cough up for it. That's the price women have to pay for Feminism! ;-)

Peal Year - The church bells are certainly going to peal for those whose men say Yes.

Plea Year - No need to beg, have some dignity!

Early Ape - When one woman was turned down, she was so frustrated she called her man an "early ape!" whatever that means.

Anyway, if you fancy making up your own stories, here are loads more anagrams for Leap Year.

Have fun!

Early apes would periodically visit places known as Taverns. They would only visit them once every 4 years, on February 29th. On that day, bells would peal all over the kingdom, announcing that it was time to visit the tavern. That is how it got to be known as Peal Year.
The last ape to the tavern would have to pay for all of the Ape's ale at the next Peal Year, and this ape became known as the Ale Payer.

If the Ape had a good excuse for being the last to the Tavern, he was allowed to appeal his appointment as Ale Payer, with the deadline for the appeal being February 28th of the following year. This year was known as the Plea year.
