Yay!!!! The leap day is here! *before you roll your eyes, yes I know you have a calendar and you know that*
Back to my excitement.
*i don’t even know why i am so excited about the day*
It is said that statistically, the chances of being born in a leap year is about 1 in 1,500. And I just couldn't be that 1?! oh, how I wish it was my birthday. How cool would it be to be born on the 29th of February?
*cue in R.Kelly's I wish*
So, what exactly is a leap year? How did we come about adding an extra day to February? What is the day really about?
The Tropical Calendar:
This is the sole explanation for the leap year according to www.independent.co.uk...
A year is the time it takes the Earth to fully circumnavigate the sun, which is approximately 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 47 seconds.
Every four years we add an extra day to the month of February, the month with the fewest days, to keep our calendars on track.
If we didn’t do this the seasons would shift around the calendar, and in 750 years’ time June would find itself in the middle of winter.
So, basically it wouldn't affect us as we no get winter for Naija? Or maybe harmattarn in June for us? These people sef.
All I know is that it is a leap day, I am excited for just that reason and it is a beautiful day to be me!
Y'all have a blessed day!
Love and light.
