title : Sadie Hawkins Day on Feb. 29 Marks Role Reversal Holiday When Women Propose Dates to Men
summary : Leap Day on Feb. 29 is also considered by many to be Sadie Hawkins Day, an observance that originated from Al Capp's classic pen and ink comic strip, "Li'l Abner," in which the character of Sadie Hawkins grew desperate to marry and called unmarried men to court her on Sadie Hawkins Day. Sadie Hawkins Day is recognized as an American folk event in which girls take the initiative to ask a boy out for a date, which was something unheard when the practice originated after the Great Depression.
