I did some further investigation to find out that Sadie Hawkins Day is associated with Leap Day. As a teenager, I always looked forward to any opportunity to chase the boys. No wonder I loved Leap Day! Unfortunately, my high school never had a Sadie Hawkins dance. Somewhat more unfortunately, this did not stop my overly-zealous boy-craziness.
It's a good thing I got this guy to chase me instead!
