     LEAP DAY
    February 29
    It only happens once every 4 years, so make this LEAP DAY a good one by doing something special for someone else!

    What is a Leap Year?

    Fun Leap Year

    Facts for Kids

    • Leap Day is held on February 29th.
    • During a Leap Year there are 366 days in the year instead of 365.
    • Why do we have a Leap Year?  If has to do with the Earth and the Sun.
    • It takes the Earth 365 days to make a complete orbit around the Sun.  We call this a solar year.
    • The solar year is supposed to line up with our calendar (we use the Gregorian calendar) year,
    • but without the leap year it won’t. Why?
    • It actually takes the earth 365 days 5 hours 48 minutes and 46 seconds to complete the orbit around the sun.
    • That extra time it takes for the Earth to complete its orbit adds up.
    • So every 4 years an extra day is added so that the solar year will stay in line with our calendar year.
    • Even with the extra day added every 4 years the calendar is still off by 11 minutes and 14 seconds.
