Leap Year 2020

This year is a special one, as this year we are given 366 days to wake up and be thankful. That’s because 2020 is a Leap Year, which only occurs every four years. But what and when exactly is Leap Day?

Leap Day was generated as an additional calendar day for the month of February in order to keep our modern Gregorian calendar in alignment with our planets rotation around the sun.

Fun fact about this special occurrence, an easy way to determine if the year we are in is a Leap Year, divide it by 4 and you will get a whole number. If the number has a decimal then Leap Day will not occur that year.
