leap year

Lots of people wonder why leap year happens every 4 year. Not many people really know why leap year happens we just know it happens.  Your year is about to get one day longer. Monday, Feb. 29 is leap day, the day inserted into the calendar every four years to keep our calendar operating smoothly. This extra day makes the year 366 days long, instead of 365 days like regular years.
