Oh, leap year. You know it’s today (I hope), you know it only comes around every four years, but do you know much else about it? Check out this infographic for all the facts on this elusive holiday: why we have leap years, why the extra day is February 29, and what big things have happened on leap years of lore.
My favorite? Today also marks Sadie Hawkins Day as well as Rare Diseases Day—because being Leap Day wasn’t enough. (Also, really? Rare Diseases and Sadie Hawkins only deserve one day every four years?)
In any case, read on and enjoy your extra day!
