Day 2199 - Happy Leap Day!

Greetings, Bloggy Leapers!

It's February 29th, also known as 'Leap Day' in the Gregorian calendar. I think we should all get a holiday, since they are few and far between.

Singer Dinah Shore was a Leap Baby as well as Bandleader Jimmy Dorsey. There is even a Serial Killer who was born on Leap Day, but I will not name him because they don't deserve publicity.

There is a movie about an Irish tradition that women can propose to men on Leap Day, and the man must accept or pay a penalty. The movie is from 2010, and called 'Leap Year'. It's cute, I've seen it...

Leap Day is also St Oswald’s Day, named after an archbishop of York who died on February 29, 992. The memorial is celebrated on February 29 during Leap Years and on February 28 during common years.

Have a Happy Leap Day! There won't be another one for 4 more years.

Savi was supposed to be a leap year baby! We got snow for our extra day! It's falling now, just starting to stick. Heavy, sticky snow. Thanks leap year!
Thanks for the Leap Year information!

Snow later tonight and all day tomorrow, 8 to 10". Staying home!
