Happy Leap Year!
I hope everyone is having a happy day! I am going to make a confession. I have always heard about leap year, and knew it was an extra day of the year, but never really did any research about it. After talking to my Mom on the phone about leap year this morning, I decided to do a little research. I learned that there are 5 Fridays on our calendar for this month. The month began with a Friday, and now is ending on a Friday. With this added special day, we get 366 days this year. :) I also was wondering why do we need this extra day. This is what I found. Leap years are needed to keep our calendar in alignment with the earths revolutions round the sun. Now when the kids ask me today why we have this day, I will have a legitimate answer. :) Have a great day!
