"February 29, known as a leap day in the Gregorian calendar, is a date that occurs in most years that are evenly divisible by 4, such as 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016. Years that are evenly divisible by 100 do not contain a leap day, with the exception of years that are evenly divisible by 400, which do contain a leap day; thus 1900 did not contain a leap day while 2000 did. Years containing a leap day are called leap years. February 29 is the 60th day of the Gregorian calendar in such a year, with 306 days remaining until the end of that year." (Wikipedia)
Thus, in brief, this date rolls around once every four years, a nifty quirk of the Gregorian calendar. And in other words, it means that I can only write about this topic four-yearly. But, aye, no worries B-)
Apparently, I would say....
It is the day for some friends out there to celebrate their most-awaited actual date of birth. Nevertheless, it makes me wonder on when the leap year babies would actually celebrate their birthdays; Feb 28th? 1st March? or BOTH - better, isn't? *wink
Or it could even be the anniversaries..
And undeniably, for everyone working, it is just another extra day at work .. :)
Last but not least, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY and HAPPY WORKING FOLKS !!
