  • Bissextile Day…hmmm

    Otherwise known as “Leap Day.” I thought that since this occurs every four years it would be a good idea to have a some information on it.

     I think one interesting thing is that “Bissextile Day” occurs 97 times in a 400 year period. Since the Gregorian Calendar repeats itself every 400 years. Of that 97 times ”Bissextile Day” falls thirteen times on a Sunday, Tuesday or Thursday; fourteen times on a Friday or Saturday; and fifteen times on a Monday or Wednesday.

    And for those born on this day, you are referred to as a “Leapling.” I want to meet a “Leapling.” If anyone reading this knows one or is one then give us a shout.
