This year will have 366 days

Some people will tell you that one year contains 365 days and this is not wrong because most of the time a year has that number of days. But, there is an exception every four years when a leap year takes place on February 29. 

According to The Farmer’s Almanac, “adding an extra day every four years keeps our calendar aligned correctly with the astronomical seasons since a year according to the Gregorian calendar (365 days) and a year according to Earth’s orbit around the Sun (approximately 365.25 days) are not the exact same length of time.”

Anyway, did you know that people who are born on 29 February celebrate their birthday only in the leap years, namely from 4 to 4 years?
