Hoppy Leap Day

Leap Day

Leap days are for the sun
New day’s not just for fun
Each Leap year’s leap divine
After Feb 29
Two days instead of one

The term leap year probably comes from the fact that a fixed date in the Gregorian calendar normally advances one day of the week from one year to the next, but the day of the week in the 12 months following the leap day (from March 1 through February 28 of the following year) will advance two days due to the extra day, thus leaping over one day in the week. For example, Christmas Day (December 25) fell on a Tuesday in 2012, Wednesday in 2013, Thursday in 2014, and Friday in 2015, but then leapt over Saturday to fall on a Sunday in 2016.

A leap year (also known as an intercalary year) is a calendar year that contains an additional day added to keep the calendar year synchronized with the astronomical year or seasonal year.Because astronomical events and seasons do not repeat in a whole number of days, calendars that have the same number of days in each year drift over time with respect to the event that the year is supposed to track. By inserting (called intercalating in technical terminology) an additional day, the drift can be corrected.
