    Happy Leap Year!

    Did you know that it actually takes the earth 365.25 days to orbit the sun? Therefore, we must account for that .25 by having a full day added to our calendar every four years…

    .25 X 4 = 1 day- Leap Day!


    Happy leap year to everyone!

    Does anyone know someone born on this day!?

    Unless it is a century year that can't be divided by 400... Happy Leap Day. Do people born on February 29 typically celebrate on 2/28 or 3/1?

    a century year is every 100 years (a century). like 100, 200, 2000, 2500... so on

    So 1900 did not have a leap day, since it is not divisible by 400.
