Why are Stanley cups so popular Why do we have Leap Year

Leap Day is February 29th, and it comes around every four years.

February 29th is a day that happens every four years. It’s known as Leap Day, and it comes around on the same date every four years. The reason we have this extra day in February is because our calendar only has 12 months, which means that there are 366 days in a year. However, there are actually 365 days in a year when you take out the five extra days that make up for the fact that Earth takes a little longer to orbit the sun than 365 days.

If we didn’t add these five extra days into our calendar, then our calendar would be off by one day every four years. So to fix this problem, we add an extra day once every four years on February 29th.
