According to legend, the tradition of women romantically pursuing men on Leap Day began in 5th century Ireland, when St. Bridget complained to St. Patrick about women having to wait for men to propose. St. Patrick finally relented and set February 29th aside as the day allowing women the right to ask for a man’s hand in marriage.

The tradition continued in 13th century Scotland, when Queen Margaret declared that on February 29 a woman had the right to propose marriage to any man she cared for. Men who refused were faced with a fine (such as a kiss, a silk dress, or a pair of gloves) to be given to the rejected lady.

Though the Ides of March is the most famous (due to the assassination of Julius Caesar on March 15, 44BC which was forever immortalized in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar), all months during Roman times had designated Ides.

In the Roman calendar, the Ides of each month was the day of the full moon and signified the halfway point in the month. The Ides of most months was on the 13th, but it fell on the 15th in March, May, July and October. However, because calendar months and the lunar cycle are slightly out of sync, this connection was soon lost.

As the dust settled, the remaining tributes surveyed the carnage around them and prepared to turn in for a well-deserved rest. 10 tributes were eliminated in the first day of competition but 13 remain to fight to the social media death.

After the cannons boomed to memorialize those departed, an announcement rang out above the arena:
“THIS JUST IN FROM THE CAPITAL CUBES: Due to overwhelming sponsor support, @ has been granted immunity for Day 2. He will progress immediately to the Day 3 tasks”

Tributes, remember to continue to get your Twitter sponsors to vote you, since at the end of each day the votes will be tallied and whoever has the most that day will be awarded a competitive edge!

“THIS JUST IN FROM THE CAPITAL CUBES: After an incredible fight to the finish with @, @ has been given the power to eliminate one of the remaining tributes from the competition! Let the Gamemakers know your choice by 9:30AM tomorrow”

The competition took a personal turn as @ eliminated @ with one fell swoop. Though eliminated from the competition, @ took it upon herself to seek revenge through snarky tweets and support to other players. In the heat of the battle, the tributes joined forces with their mentors to stay alive in the competition. Alas, 4 didn’t survive the day and were eliminated. Only 7 remain.

After the cannons boomed to memorialize those departed, an announcement rang out above the arena:
“THIS JUST IN FROM THE CAPITAL CUBES: Due to sponsor support (again) @ has been given the opportunity to change a tribute’s mentor (whether his own or someone else’s). Let the Gamemakers know by 9AM tomorrow who’s mentor will change!”

Tributes, remember to continue to get your Twitter sponsors to vote for you, since at the end of each day the votes will be tallied and whoever has the most that day will be awarded a competitive edge!
