Happy Leap Day 2020! It's already weird that February is a short month but why is the leap year in February??? Why couldn't we take a day off a month that has 31 days? If you didn't already know, Leap year happens every 4 years. THis helps us stay on track since the earth circles the sun in 365.2421 days (History.com).
"Nearly every four years, we add an extra day to the calendar in the form of February 29, also known as Leap Day. Put simply, these additional 24 hours are built into the calendar to ensure that it stays in line with the Earth’s movement around the Sun. While the modern calendar contains 365 days, the actual time it takes for Earth to orbit its star is slightly longer—roughly 365.2421 days. The difference might seem negligible, but over decades and centuries that missing quarter of a day per year can add up. To ensure consistency with the true astronomical year, it is necessary to periodically add in an extra day to make up the lost time and get the calendar back in synch with the heavens."
