FEBRUARY 29th…

February 29, 2016

Well here we are… last day of the month, February 29, also known as LEAP DAY – a date that occurs in most years that are divisible by 4, such as 2008, 2012, 2016, 2020, and 2024.  

[Wikipedia]  Although most calendar years have 365 days, a complete revolution around the sun (1 solar year) takes approximately 365 days and 6 hours.  An extra 24 hours thus accumulates every four years, requiring that an extra calendar day be added to align the calendar with the Sun’s apparent position.  Without the added day, in future years the seasons would occur later in the calendar, eventually leading to confusion about when to undertake activities dependent on weather, ecology or hours of daylight.

ENJOY IT!
