Hi. I am just a bit curious about this.
Today is Leap Day 2020. Happy Leap Day 2020 to anyone interested I guess.
It's Leap Day because today is February 29. A leap year is a year with an extra day in it, and this occurance only happens once every four years.
There's a Google Doodle dedicated to Leap Day:
According to a quick Google search:
"Leap day is also St. Oswald's Day, named after the archbishop of York who died on February 29, 992. His memorial is celebrated on February 29 during leap years and on February 28 during common years."
Is this holiday a big deal?
If so, how exactly DOES one celebrate Leap Day, or St. Oswald's Day?
Please help- thank you.
