Just 1 day until Leap Year Day!

Tomorrow is leap day, which means that this year has 366 days instead of the usual 365 days that an ordinary year has. Leap years are needed to keep our calendar in alignment with the earth's revolutions around the sun. Below is a well known leap day poem. Enjoy your day!

Thirty days hath September,April, June and November;

All the rest have thirty-oneSave February,

she aloneHath eight days and a score

Til leap year gives her one day more.
