Hey - who added an extra day onto my year? We can thank the Gregorian Calendar for this situation. Because the Gregorian calendar has only 365 day in a year and if we don't add a day on February 29th nearly every four years we would lose almost six hours off our calendar every year and after only 100 years, our calendar would be off by approximately 24 days!
Yikes -- being off 24 days would be a lot more confusing than adding one day every four years. Certainly the hours and days go by quickly enough as it is. I couldn't imagine losing 24 days. Come to think of it, if I live to be 100 an extra 24 hours probably wouldn't matter.
So like my friend above I will leap ahead into March - using this extra day of the year to have some fun. Yes, I could use it to do something really useful - but then it wouldn't really be a great leap.
