Happy Birthday Leap Year Babies!
So why do we have a leap day every four years? According to the Honor Society of leap year Babies, "the extra day is added every four years to bring the solar year of 365.25 days into line with the calendar year of 365 days.So technically speaking, babies born on February 29th age in consecutive years, but only get to celebrate their official birthday once every four years. Take for example, Betty Flemming who turns 88 today but is only celebrating her 22nd birthday! It isn't a way to slow the aging process, but it sure makes for a nice ice breaker!
