Why are you reporting this puzzle?

Leap Year was “invented” back in the first century BC, when Julius Caesar and his team of astronomers noticed that their Roman calendar had somehow slipped out of sync with the seasons. They came up with a 365-day calendar that would sometimes add an extra day to the last month of the year, which was February. The purpose of adding an extra day to February every four years is to sync up the 365-day Gregorian calendar with the solar calendar, which is 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 46 seconds long — the (near) exact amount of time it takes the earth to revolve around the sun. The next leap year will occur on Saturday, February, 29, 2020.

And I used to teach my school children to find a leap year divide the last two numbers of any year by 4 and if it went exactly, that was a leap year. Thanks and hugs Nette.

Thanks, Nette, my sister in-law was born on the 29th February, so only has a birthday every four years, one way of staying young :)))

CUTE, Jeanette! ; ) I do pity those born on 2-29, tho. Will be starting my Kristi on a dif anti-biotic and anti-acid on Mon 3-5. If she can't tolerate that, Vet says he has something else to try. We had a good chat yesterday when I dropped by the clinic.
