When is Leap Year Day?
If calendar publishers put the words LEAP DAY on February 29, more people would remember it, and
maybe even celebrate it. An extra day to live! An extra day to have fun! An extra day to love! An extra
day to do something good for someone else.
If February 2nd can have " Ground Hog Day", in ink, February 29 is surely more deserving of the words
LEAP YEAR DAY - or - LEAP DAY. If it were not for this extra day, we Americans wouldn't know when
to expect that groundhog so precisely.
But alas, this Leap Year, again, a very small percentage (maybe a 1/2 of a percentage) of calendars
have those words on them. I received a bank calendar from a fellow Leap Day baby that has they words
LEAP DAY on February 29. I have not seen or heard of any others.
And those List of Special Days that are available in the size and shape of a business card do not have
LEAP DAY on them. It's probably the original Special Day. And it is a celebration of the calendar too!
So we need to help those who make calendars understand why it is important for them to include this
day in writing, and on the lists, every four years.
