Celebrate leap year with a proposal.

IT ONLY comes around every four years, but a leap year brings with it a great opportunity for the ladies. According to tradition, on the last day in February in a leap year, women can take matters into their own hands by proposing to their man.

This tradition dates back to the fifth century, and as legend goes a law enacted by Queen Margaret of Scotland in 1288 stated that women could legally propose to a suitable male suitor and if the proposal was denied then fines could be levied. Fines could range from a kiss to Au1 or even a silk gown. This law was then tightened up so the proposal could only be made by women on the leap day.

So with February 29 coming up, Limassol's Londa Hotel is wondering if any of you females would like to reinvigorate this old tradition? When plotting your proposal, it's particularly important to bear in mind that place and time are very influential; luckily the Londa Hotel has taken care of all the planning and created an irresistible Luxury Leap Year overnight package.

For the very special price of e1/4150 per room, offering an elegant Italian styled and furnished room on bed and breakfast basis, with a complimentary bottle of Prosecco for added enjoyment, the scene is set for your perfect celebration evening. For those choosing to dine within the hotel, a set menu dinner will be available in the hotel's stunning Caprice Restaurant for the fixed price of e1/435 per person.

In keeping with the leap year theme, for the lucky lady whose proposal is met with a resounding 'yes!', the loving couple will be presented with a complimentary nights' accommodation in a Sea View Suite, on their wedding night.

Of course, a marriage proposal is not the only reason to celebrate the event of a Leap Year. There are many other reasons to take advantage of this special offer and have dinner in the Caprice Restaurant or enjoy an overnight stay at the Londa.
