Feb 29 - Leap Day!

I knew a girl born on Leap Day. She dressed up like a toddler and walked around high school on her 4th birthday. It was kind of annoying.


Leap Day is every fours years....almost. It's every four years except years ending with "00" that are not divisible by 400. The year in which Leap Day occurs, is called a Leap Year.

Why the fancy calculation? The earth rotates around the sun once every 365 and about 1/4 days. So, by adding an extra day every four years, we get mighty close to keeping the calendar consistent with the earth's annual trip around the sun. And to be very precise......

Sorry about that!

Happy Leap Day!

February 28 - National Floral Design Day

Do we really need a Floral Design Day?? And, why is it just National and nor International?? Oh, the humanity. :(

Floral dress, anyone?

Well, anyways. I'm not finding much in the way of hideous floral design. As an alternative, I invite you all to gawk at World Sword Swallowers Day!

Eww. No thanks.

Yep. This.

/\ Not new, but still cute.

I'm thinking I will NEVER try this. No thanks.

Yeah. No.

February 27 - International Polar Bear Day

Wikipedia thinks that "International Polar Bear Day is organized by Polar Bears International to raise awareness about the impact of global warming and reduced sea ice on polar bear populations."

Personally, I think International Polar Bear Day should also recognize some cute polar bear gifs!

<3 Polar Bears!!!
