Leap!!!!




February 29 is a date that occurs only every four years, in years evenly divisible by 4, such as 1988, 1996, 2008 or 2016 (with the exception of century years not divisible by 400, such as 1900) for the Gregorian calendar, which is most widely used in the world today. These are called leap years, and February 29 is the 60th day of the Gregorian calendar in such a year, with 306 days remaining until the end of that year. February 29 is also known as bissextile day or Leap Day.


It even has its own website

I HATE NEW YORK!!! Just kidding. I like it because my husband is here. It is cold and snowy and too far away from all my family and friends. The only cool thing is that we live 2 1/2 hours from Palmyra. I love reading your other blog. It always makes me feel better. I wish I were elegant and could write like that!!

Sarah, you have an 'other' blog?

Gary's friend was born on leap year ... he'll be 7 this year, lol. Really he's like 28 or 29 or something. Funny.
