Leaping thru the day …

Happy Leap year.jpg

Here’s some fun facts about leap year:

  • Today you are working for free if you are on a fixed annual wage.
  • February 29 also marks Rare Disease Day.
  • The frog is a symbol typically associated with February 29.
  • People born on February 29th are called “leaplings” or “leapers.”
  • Leap Year was once known as Ladies Day and was the one day when women were free to propose to men.
  • Hugh Hefner opened his first Playboy Club on February 29, 1960.

And here’s one of the versions of the Month Poem to help you remember the timing of leap year:

Thirty days hath September,

April, June and November;

All the rest have thirty-one;

Save February, she along

Hath eight days and a score

‘Til leap year gives her one day more.

Thanks for reading!
