Leap Day 2016

Makes sense when the solar system be like yo Gregorian calendar this beo for rounding me up and ignoring my decimals. Well I learned something new today 😀

Time & Memories by Azzara

Leap Day is on Monday, February 29, 2016.

Why do we have leap years? A leap year, where an extra day is added to the end of February every four years, is down to the solar system’s disparity with the Gregorian calendar.

A complete orbit of the earth around the sun takes exactly 365.2422 days to complete, but the Gregorian calendar uses 365 days.

So leap seconds – and leap years – are added as means of keeping our clocks (and calendars) in sync with the Earth and its seasons.

See you in next four year ok. [阿扎]
