    As a “Grecian” – usually just called a Greek – I can confirm that Greek couples do tend to avoid leap years, although this particular superstition is not backed up by local Orthodox priests, the prime source of superstitions in local folklore (the Greek Orthodox Church itself does not openly promote these superstitions).

    You can fill many 5×5 episodes with Greek superstitions, like the “evil eye” (which both the “Encyclopedia of the Paranormal” and the online “Skeptic’s Dictionary” report as being widespread across the world).

    Consider this a nag to get 5×5 going again…
