How wonderful that we are at another leap year. Happy Birthday to all those who are very young, having a birthday only every 4 years. Interestingly enough, it is the same year the US has its presidential election.
So why is it called leap year? Typically, if a day falls on Monday, the following year it will fall on Tuesday. When it’s leap year, you “leap” over a day, and so that same day is now Wednesday.
Some famous people born on Feb 29th include Dinah Shore, Jimmy Dorsey, Tony Robbins.
- IT is also the only time a woman may propose marriage to a man, according to older laws. This was portrayed in the movie “Leap Year’ with actress Amy Adams.
