Yay! We get an extra day on the year the apocalypse is supposed to happen! So on this day be grateful for an extra day to be alive 🙂
So this is a day that is technically not considered a real day as it is just the accumulation of the extra 5 hours, 49 minutes, and 16 seconds we have add up every year (approximately .25 of a day every year, which is why leap year only comes every 4 years). On this unreal day it is a time for us to break tradition such as ladies can ask men to marry them on this day, a tradition started in Ireland and Scotland. With those extra 24 hours this year watch a few movies or even take out that pen and start writing that novel you have been putting off. Set goals for yourself that you want accomplished by the next leap year. Or make this your free day to miss out on your diet or work out!
So go ahead and leap into something new!
