leaplings day

today is a leap day! a very special day for people born on February 29. of course everyone knows that not every year has 365days in a year. for a leap year it has 366days and people born on this day are oftenly called leaplings. so how do they celebrate their birthdays? do they celebrate it on February 28 or March 1? well... many leaplings shared their stories on how to celebrate this special day. you can visit http://leapyearday.com/hr/members.html here you can get in touch with other leaplings.
leap year happens every four years and to list, here are the last ten years of a leap year:

2008
2004
2000
1996
1992
1988
1984
1980
1976
1972
which means that the next leap year happens in 2012. did you observe something? think about the olympics. it follows the leap year but not since its history. to know more about how leap year is determined and why there's such a leap year, check out this link http://people.howstuffworks.com/question50.htm. if you want to know more why it happens on a February, check this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leap_year.
