Leap Year is Here!

29 February

February 29, also known as leap day, occurs once every four years in a leap year. The significance of February 29 is primarily due to the fact that it helps synchronize the calendar year with the astronomical year. The Earth’s orbit around the Sun takes approximately 365.25 days, so adding an extra day every four years helps to keep our calendar in alignment with the Earth’s revolutions.

Rare Birthdays: People born on February 29, known as “leap day babies” or “leap year babies,” celebrate their birthdays less frequently than others—only once every four years. Some celebrate on February 28 or March 1 in non-leap years.

Leap Day Traditions: Various cultures have traditions and superstitions associated with February 29. In some places, it’s considered a day when women can propose to men, reversing traditional gender roles in proposals.

World Record for Leap Year Babies: The Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of people born on February 29 was set in 2012 in Anthony, Texas, where 684 leap day babies came together to celebrate their unique birthdays.
