Leap for joy

Hurray, we get an extra day this year.  February 29th occurs every four years, with the exception of years ending with “00” that are not divisible by 400. The year in which this occurs, is called a Leap Year.

The earth rotates around the sun once every 365 and about 1/4 days. So, by adding an extra day every four years, we get close to keeping the calendar consistent with the earth’s annual trip around the sun.

So, celebrate Leap Day doing something creative, productive, and maybe even fun!
