If only I was born on February 29th - I would be 16 yrs old! LOL
Oops - did I just give away my age?
Even though the standard calendar year is 365 days, the Earth actually takes 365 days 5 hours 48 minutes and 46 seconds to go completely around the sun. In order to keep the calendar cycle synchronized with the seasons, one extra day is (usually) added every four years as February 29th.
Consider doing something fun this leap year to celebrate.
You could write a letter to yourself to be opened four years later on the next
Make some yummy frog inspired treats.
You could make some "Leap Year" bookmarks to give to your friends...
Or enjoy a cup of "green tea" in the morning...
But by all means do something to celebrate this leap year ...
or you will have to wait four more years!
Happy Leap Year!
