What is Leap Year? Wiki….please Leap Year
“A leap year (or intercalary or bissextile year) is a year containing one additional day (or, in the case of lunisolar calendars, a month) in order to keep the calendar year synchronized with the astronomical or seasonal year. Because seasons and astronomical events do not repeat in a whole number of days, a calendar that had the same number of days in each year would, over time, drift with respect to the event it was supposed to track. By occasionally inserting (or intercalating) an additional day or month into the year, the drift can be corrected. A year that is not a leap year is called a common year.”
I figure I would blog about it since it only happens every four years and its my parents wedding anniversary Can you imagine 20 years pass and your actual birthday is 5 or be married 16 years and actually have had only 4 real anniversaries. Kind of crazy and cool.
