Take a Leap!
Ever wish you had more time? Well THIS YEAR YOU DO! Leap years give us one extra day at the end of February every 4 years. This is necessary to keep our calendar in alignment with the revolutions of the earth about the sun. The earth makes one rotation around the sun every 365.242199 days. This is also known as a tropical year or a solar year - meaning the time it takes for the sun to return to the same relationship to the bodies that rotate around it. This relationship is one that we associate with the seasons and the length of sunlight we have throughout the year. The calendar that we use has 365 days which, if we do the math, comes up a bit short: almost six hours each year. After 100 years, our calendar would be off by almost 24 whole days. 2012 is a leap year!
