HAPPY LEAP DAY!

This is actually simple to understand…  February 29th falls on a Saturday Once every 28 Years except when a Year evenly divisible by 100 is not a proper leap year like 2100. A default leap year is always a leap year starting on a Wednesday. Every four years, people who therefore are born on Feb. 29 actually have the opportunity to celebrate their birthday. This is since Monday is a leap day, the extra day is added every fourth year to fix the problem, namely that while our calendar year is 365 days, the amount of time it takes the Earth to circle the sun in this instance, unlike other leap years, is not synchronized right.

  • Do you see why this leap year is different?

    • Yes
