Question about the leap year and adding 1 day to February? by Q: As we can see, 1 day is not exactly 24 hours, it's 23 hours 56 mins approximately. So my question is why do we add 1 day to february (Feb 29) after 4 years when it's actually less than 24 hours per day...And according to my calculation, if this continues for approx 200 years then a major adjustment is necessary....I searched wikipedia but cant really understand the thing. Can anyone explain this leap year thing to me in detail, would be very grateful. Thankyou.

A: A year isn't exactly 365 days long. It's 365.25 days long. So by counting off a year every 365 days, we fall behing 1/4 of a day each year. After four years, we're a full day behind, so we add that day into February. Actually, the year isn't exactly 365.25 days long. It's more like 365.24, so we don't add a day to years that end in 00 (1900, 2000, 2100, etc.). And that's not exact, either, so we also DO add the day to the 100s that are also divisible by 400 (1600, 2000, 2400, etc.) And so on.

What do schools do with kids who are born on leap day? by sweetperson101 Q: I think they go by regular years but i'm not sure. And what happens with medical records and when they have to bubble in their birthday? Stuff like that

A: Depends on the country. Some countries say that a leapling (someone born feb 29th) officially ages on 28th of February when not in a leap year as it is the last day of the month they were born in while others say the baby officially ages on 1st of March as this is the day after 28th Feb which is always the day before their birthday, leap year or not. D.O.B. will always be recorded 29 February YYYY though

How do people born on Leap Day/Year celebrate their birthdays? by freakknastyy Q: If you're born on Feb 29th, how do u celebrate it? On the 28th, or March 1st? Do u feel like u were cheated out of a normal birthday?

A: You can pick either one. Some people just go 365 days from the last time they celebrated. Your birthday never changes but the day you celebrate can be any time you want. Same thing if you're born on a holiday. editing - as the young lady below me suggests - the day you ceelebrate is a personal decision. Pick a weekend if you want. It's your party!

I want to do something special for Leap Day? 10 points for good idea? by Q: It is an extra day in the year! And I want to do something special to make it worth while. Only thing is, my dad and brother are going to be out tonight, so me and my mom are stuck in the house. (We don't want to go out in the rain, because we just waxed our new car down).

If Someone Was Born In Leap Day Do They Live Longer Than Us? by Devi Q: My head just keeps asking questions and sorry about that-I'll probably smash my head by now!

A: No, it just means they technically have a birthday once every four years. It doesn't do anything biologically.

If you was born on Leap Year day do you like to be born on that day or not? by Q: Everybody thinks that leap year day is stupid because my birthday only comes every 4 years!

A: Leap year isn't stupid, it's just that in my opinion it kind of does suck to have your birthday come every four years. Sometimes friends don't quite remember if that specific year is a leap year, and its going to make a person feel terrible if they are asked when their birthday is by their own friends. And sometimes it can get confusing.

If your birthday is on leap day, when do you actually celebrate it when it is not leap year? by Maestro Q: I'm just curious. I would guess you would celebrate it February 28th or March 1st, but maybe not.

Righties: Are you upset that black history month lasted one extra day this year due to leap day? by Q: It is unfortunate that the american public school system has so inadequately provided proper instructional pedagogy on african and african american historical explanation that a month had to be set aside to supplement this disservice. well anyway, ..oh and texas and tennessee are trying to take it a step further by watering down the history of slavery in america. lol..the saga continues.

A: Actually, I always loved Black History Month when my kids were in grade school. They attended a Catholic School that was 1/2 Black and 1/2 White. I always loved helping the kids select the people that they would write their reports about, and learning about Black people who had shaped our history. (By the way, I am White.) Unfortunately, slavery is a sad part of American History. Surely we can move on after 150 years! Let's all enjoy Black History Month. The extra day is a bonus!

If a man refuses a marriage proposal on a leap day does he have to pay woman money as a penalty? by Isis is holding on to a fading flower Q: if this is the case what if she proposes to complete stranger on the street? is this a good way to make money? and how much does she receive? if it's in ireland?

A: A little secret. Leap Year is a movie based in the rather backward Hollywood version of Ireland. It has no grasp on reality. In the real Ireland, 29th Feb is just a normal day, albeit one that only comes round every 4 years. We don't keep pigs in our kitchens. We have piped water and electricity. We don't hate English people.

A: They age every year just like everyone else.

if someone is born on the leap day feb 29 do they live 4 times longer than everyone else? by Q: just curious coz leap years only happen once every 4 years so they only get 1 birth day in that time.

A: no my best friend is born feb 29 1996 so she celebrate on feb 28 and mar 1 so she celebrates becasue you get older each year even if you don't have a birthday e-mail me if your confused because sometimes i can be confusing

How accurate does leap day reflect the correct orbit of earth around the sun? by gismoII Q: Are we actually off 1/4 of a day by the end of February, 2009?

A: There is a leap century as well. Every 200 years, we skip a leap day, so February 28, 2000, was followed by March 1. Between the leap year every 4 years and that, the next adjustment occurs in several milennia, so don't worry about it.

Question about Leap Day at Disneyland? by Haley Q: I'm planning a trip to Disneyland for the 29th of Feb for the 24 hour Leap Day. I've made hotel and plane reservations already but now I'm worried that that day might sell out. I know you can purchase tickets online but it doesnt say you can buy them for a specific day. It just says "valid until December 2012". So do those tickets automatically get you in the park or can you still be turned away? Or is there a way to buy tickets specifically for that date?

A: I haven't heard if there is going to be a special ticket for that day.... you may want to call Disney customer service and ask. If not... then get there MEGA early and get into the park when the open that way you can be in and have your ticket validated for that day of entry and then you will more than likely be able to leave and re-enter when you want (remember to get your hand stamped). If they restrict entry later it will be to new entry people only, not people with a hand stamp that have been in earlier in the day (at least this is how it has worked in the past during busy holidays).

How old were you when you when you found out that Leap Day William wasn't real? by Q: http://www.hulu.com/watch/332646/30-rock-leap-day Yet everyone still celebrates Leap Day, and pretends Leap Day Williams lives in the Marianas Trench, and every four years he surfaces, to trade childrens' tears for candy.

Is anyone out there born on the leap day like me? by Lalalalaaa Q: I'm born on the leap day, and I was wondering if anyone on here was too.

A: well i was born on independence day and i know of someone who got married on 29th feb (leap day) but i dont know anyone who was born on that day. Its good for you, every 4 years, you grow older by just 1 year.

Do you do anyhting different on Leap Day? by Elmo Love You Q: Today is Leap day, the 29th of February. What do you do on Leap Day? I don't do anything different really!

Are you wearing yellow and blue today to celebrate the Leap Day miracle? by Q: Once every four years, when humanity puts aside its petty differences, and the whole world unites in celebration of the one day that doesn't really count - that's when people make real connections with other people. "Nothing that happens on Leap Day matters."

A: I'm wearing a bright yellow shirt--had to borrow from my partner b/c I usually only wear drabs--& a blue dress underneath it & my bright yellow galoshes. Boy am I a sight for sore eyes. AAMOF, with the clothes I'm wearing I could heal the blind! No where's my cigarettes I was promised?

What are the odds of being born and dying on leap day? by iloveskating Q: In "Leap Day" by Wendy Mass, Josie says the odds of being born and dying on leap day is practically astronomical. Because of this, she knows she can rest easy and not worry about dying on February 29th. Is it astronomical or are the odds just really really low of both being born AND dying on leap day?

A: Previous events have no effect on the odds of future events. The odds of someone, in the future, playing two lottery games with 1-in-1,000 odds, and winning both, is 1-in-1,000,000. However, once the person wins the first lottery, the odds of then winning both is 1-in-1,000, just like anyone else. If you flip a coin and it comes up "heads" 100 times in a row, it's still 50-50 that the next flip will be "tails", despite the emotional response of "it's due". (This ignores the possibility that the coin isn't balanced, and is weighted to come up heads most of the time.) Just because someone is born on February 29 doesn't make the odds that they will die on February 29 any different than anyone else, regardless of their birthday. - kb -
