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.
