Just in case you missed that day in fourth grade where they explain what the occasional February 29th is all about, here’s a quick refresher… The smart guys who created the calendars we used could not take into account the actual speed the earth (that planet we currently live on) goes around the sun. It really takes more than 365 days. If there was no leap day summer would start to hit some time in March or maybe even January.
So this year you get an extra day. Doesn’t it always seem that you never have enough time to get everything done. Well this year you actually get an extra day to work on your list of things you wanted to get done.
If you are paid on a monthly salary your boss gets you to work an extra day for free. Maybe you were smart and called in “sick” today so you could really put your extra day to good use. If you didn’t call in sick put it on your calendar right now for leap day 2016. You only get so many of these extra days in your lifetime. Why waste them toiling at some desk?
No they don’t only get a birthday every four years. They would be over 80 years old before they could buy booze. What happens is when they create a birth certificate for someone born on February 29th they let the parents choose if they want February 28th or March 1st on the paperwork. This will guarantee them a birthday every year.
How did you get the most out of your extra day?
