Leap Day Traditions at Home

Green_treefrogToday is Leap Day!  This rare day, which happens only every four years on February 29, doesn’t hold much significance for many people.  If you’d like to start a new year Leap Day tradition at home, check out some of these fascinating ones that have been instituted across the world!

Frogs are considered good luck on Leap Day throughout the world, for obvious reasons.  Take the family to a local creek or pond and try catching some of your own!  If you are not too squeamish, you could gather several and bring them home for a leaping contest.

Many people indulge in frog legs on this day.  If you’d rather eat your frogs rather than play with them, enjoy this delicacy at a local restaurant, such as Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen (locations in Duluth, Alpharetta, and Marietta), La Petite Maison in Atlanta, or Poor Calvin’s in Downtown Atlanta.

In Scotland, during the reign of Queen Margaret, a law went effect that made it legal for women to propose to men on Leap Day.  For a fun twist on this, try reversing your traditional gender roles at home.  Moms and dads, and brothers and sisters, can switch up chores for the day.  This will also foster a greater appreciation for each person in the family for all that they do!

Leap Day is also the perfect day to find your new dream home!  If you are looking for a new home in Atlanta, be sure to visit the beautiful communities by Richardson Housing Group (RHG Homes).  For more information on our new home communities in Gwinnett, Jackson, and DeKalb Counties, including available homes, photos, floorplans, and more, visit us online at  To keep up-to-date on the latest news and offerings by RHG Homes, check us out on Facebook at You can also catch up with us on Twitter and see footage of our beautiful new homes and communities on YouTube!
