It’s Leap Day!

From The National Day Calendar:

NATIONAL LEAP DAY

For a day that is celebrated only once every 4 years (with some mathematical exceptions we’ll go over later) it sure seems to have a lot going on around it.

Leap year has devious explorers, beloved saints, partying boarder towns and proposal popping Irish ladies. And let’s not forget all the birthdays babies. They do have some making up to do on the celebrating, you know!

Since the beginning of time, man has been improving the way we keep it. That applies to calendars as well. Early Egyptians had a leap year in their calendar. The early Roman calendar had entire leap month from time to time to keep the days in line with the astronomical year.  

The last one was in 2020…  about a week before Pandemic Lockdown started.
