Today is Leap Day
It is reputedly common knowledge that on February 29, spinsters can propose to
the object of their matrimonial desires, and must be accepted. For all the men
out there who are in hiding, you can come out now. It’s a furfy. The dangerous
day is November 9, especially if you live in Dogpatch, but more on that later.
Leap years come about because the original astronomers didn’t get the
calculations quite right. It does not take 365 days to go around the sun for one
complete revolution, it actually takes 365 days and around six hours. So
somewhere along the line, we have to put all the six hours into the equation.
This we do by adding the six hours together so that every four years we have
another 24 hour day to slip into the calendar.
