"Leap Day is every fours years....almost. It's every four years except years ending with "00" that are not divisible by 400. The year in which this occurs, is called a Leap Year. "
They get into some fancy calculations that I'll spare you here... but if your birthday is February 29th (which 1 in 1461 are) Happy Birthday! You'll actually get to celebrate your birthday on your birthdate! And it's a Friday to boot!! Go have some BIG FUN!!!
PeppersPollywogs actually has ideas for leap year theme parties from the invitations right down to the kids activities!
It's a little late to plan it for this year I guess... but don't worry, you have four more years to plan!!
Even McDonalds is jumping on the bandwagon... Try McDonald's(R) new McSkillet(TM) Burrito for FREE on leap day! (Simply order a medium or large drink and you'll get a FREE Sausage McSkillet Burrito. )
HAPPY LEAP DAY!!
