This day happens only once every four years and it’s a huge marvel when you think about it. Long before the advent of computers, satellites, etc., back as far as the 1500s, someone figured out that it takes 365 and a quarter days for the earth to travel around the sun. To some that quarter day, six measly hours, wouldn’t make a difference. In fact the difference it makes is huge. Every four years, we’d lose a day and eventually seasons would get all mixed up, summer would be winter and vice versa. It would create a plethora of problems. Leap day was the solution. Once every four years, February gains a day and the problem is solved.
So happy leap day. Now let’s take it a little further. A once in four years day deserves something special. So today the challenge is to create something worthy of a day that happens only once in four years. Maybe something odd, or unique, or just plain cool. What will you create for leap day?
I’d love to see it. Share a link in the comments.
