From food to Build-A-Bear, here are 7 Leap Day deals around Atlanta

Leap Day is celebrated in different ways around the world. In the United Kingdom, it’s tradition for women to propose to men. In Germany, it’s customary to decorate a birch tree with ribbons, and in Taiwan, it’s tradition to cook pigs’ trotters for the elderly for good fortune.

While the extra calendar day is an unofficial holiday, retailers have joined in the spirit by dishing out deals.

To enjoy the extra day, here are seven Leap Day deals around Atlanta.
