Searchin' High and Low


Tomorrow marks the day when every four years, you ladies get the "Official" sanction to go hunting courtesy of the ancient Romans needing to reset their calendars. By tradition this "Leap Day" became the day when women could propose marriage rather than waiting for some slow to the altar man to pop the question. Al Capp and the cartoon Li'l Abner picked up on this idea, but made it into a once a year event set in November. Whether every four years or once a year, tomorrow is one of the days when Sadie Hawkins tries to become Sadie, Sadie Married Lady. Of course now that we have become terribly modern, Sadie can go hunting any day of the week, but you still have to let him think it was all his idea. Some things just don't change all that easily. Just a reminder of what is supposed to happen on this your Day of Days ...



And once you drag him across the finish line:

Oh Sadie, sadie.

Maybe we should find something new for Sadie to do.

Four years is a looong time. There has to be a big event!

Great clips!

Well if one had to wait four years then it's most definitely a big event! I remember going to Sadie Hawkins dances in high school which simply meant we girls invited the boys instead of vice-versa. There's a lot to be said for cute traditions!
