Happy Leap Day!

Let's Get Ready to Leap!

It only happens every four years, and we yet again have arrived on February 29th, good ol' Leap Day! Basically created because the Earth takes 365.24 days to rotate the sun and adding this day every four years helps keep things in order (check out more facts here), it is a fun little holiday that also has eternally messed things up for anyone born on the 29th of February who wants to celebrate their birthday on the actual day every year (if you're born on the 29th you will only be able to celebrate your 4th, 8th, 12th, etc. birthdays on the actual date). Oh, and in case you were wondering about being old enough to drink or such, most places count you as being a year older on the 1st of March in non Leap-Years.
My suggestion for any of you born on this day is just to have a party in the non-29th years that starts late the 28th and goes until early in the morning on March 1st, but if you're a Leap Year baby, it really is all your choice. The main thing is for us all just to enjoy this extra day in the year and make the most of having 366 entries on our calendar instead of just 365!
