Happy Leap Year - Lets CELEBRATE!

Updated on July 9, 2014

Happy Birthday Leap Year Babies!

I'll bet that it is major confusing for kids who are born February 29th! How do you explain that to a 5 or 6 year old? Sorry honey but your birth DAY will not be until 4 years. I can hear the confusion and the objections now,

"But MOMMMY, everybody else has a birth DAY, EVERY YEAR! Booo hooo, hooo!"

Can't you just hear it? Too funny or maybe I should not poke fun huh? lol.

The dictionary describes Leap Year as:

A noun, and a year, occurring once every four years, that has 366 days including February 29 as an intercalary day.

It's ORIGIN: late Middle English : probably from the fact that feast days after February in such a year fell two days later than in the previous year, rather than one day later as in other years, and could be said to have "leaped" a day.

OK.. it does not help though does it if you are trying to explain it to a child. BUT what might be the silver lining for an adult? Too funny because an adult as they get OLDER might want to cheat a bit and say they are a whole lot younger than they really are. Hey!! I wish I had been born February 29th now.. LOL.

Wikipedia says, February 29, known as a leap day in the Gregorian calendar, is a date that occurs in most years that are evenly divisible by 4, such as 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016. Years that are evenly divisible by 100 do not contain a leap day, with the exception of years that are evenly divisible by 400, which do contain a leap day; thus 1900 did not contain a leap day while 2000 did. Years containing a leap day are called leap years. February 29 is the 60th day of the Gregorian calendar in such a year, with 306 days remaining until the end of that year.

Gosh, it's a science. So how to you explain that to a little kid? I guess you celebrate on February 28th, what else is there to do?


TURN ON THE MUSIC" .. Maria Taylor - "Leap Year " .Yup there is a song for just about everything!

Why do we need Leap Years?

Leap Years are needed to keep our calendar in alignment with the Earth's revolutions around the sun. It takes the Earth approximately 65.242199 days (a tropical year) to circle once around the Sun. But.. the Gregorian calendar has only 365 days in a year, so if we didn't add a day on February 29 nearly every 4 years, we would lose almost six hours off our calendar every year.

FINALLY It's your birthday~! Read all about it.


Someone gave me this recipe about twenty years ago. I copied it off in her kitchen on a little recipe card. My friend had served it to me and I said, "I MUST have this recipe!" You know how that goes? You taste it and think to yourself, I gotta have this at least once a week.

One of my sisters says that when dark chocolate cake is in the house she wakes up in the morning, head still on her pillow, her eyes open wide and she immediately has a HUGE smile on her face. Both my sister and I are prone to eating chocolate cake in the morning. What am I saying? We are prone to eating chocolate day and night! We are truly chocolate connoisseurs. Yes, expert judges in matters of taste. HUGE smile.

The recipe below is unique because it is made from scratch, I know.. stop thinking about the trouble and think of the outcome, besides, it truly is not that much trouble. The other thing that is unique about it is that it takes boiling water to make it. Once everything is put together you pour boiling water over it and mix. Crazy huh? and most definitely if not defiantly unique!

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 40 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: it depends, lol


  • MIX TOGETHER 2 cups sugar
  • 6 TBL. butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • ADD 2 eggs ....and mix well
  • SIFT TOGETHER (YES SIFT) 6 TBL. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • ADD SLOWLY 2 cups boiling water and mix with electric mixer as you do.


  1. Pour into your already prepared with butter and flour, oblong approx. 9x12 pan.
  2. Bake for 45-50 minutes (test with a toothpick or whatever)
  3. After you take it out of the oven?
  4. COVER IT with aluminum foil until it cools.
  5. This is a very moist cake! You can add frosting if you want to of course. Some people just can't handle cake without frosting, but normally this cake is served without it. HUGE SMILE.

When Is The Next Leap Year? - by Sandy Long

When is the next leap year? It's upon us. 2012 is a leap year. It's easy to lose track since it only comes around every four years or so. Most years that are divisible by 4 turn out to be leap years, although there are some exceptions. For example, 2012 is a leap year; 2008 was one also. Apparently, years that are divisible by 100 are not considered a leap year, such as 2100, 2200, etc.

When we have this "extra day" year, that means we have 366 days instead of the standard 365. In the Gregorian calendar, the extra day is added on February 29th, which makes sense, seeing as though it is such a short month anyway.

The long-standing advantage of a leap year (besides having an extra day) is the idea that women can propose to men. So, if you have been in a relationship for a while now, and have not been asked the big question yet, this is your chance to turn the tables and ask him.

I have often wondered what people do who are born on a "leap day." Do they get older slower than the rest of us? Or do they celebrate their birthday a day sooner or later than the real one? Or maybe they get to pick out a day to celebrate their birthday on each year.

When is the next leap year after 2012? It will be 2016, right on schedule with the years divisible by 4 rule.

Do you celebrate this special day, and if so, how? After all, it's like being given an extra 24 hours, so how do you spend it? Is it like every other day or do you do something special? Here are some ideas.

Have a special party and serve dishes you wouldn't ordinarily serve.

Go to Disneyworld. They are keeping two of their theme parks open for a straight 24 hours for added time of fun. Take advantage of it if you can!

Do something you wouldn't usually do, like go play a game of tennis in the middle of winter.

Do an especially "good deed."

If you own your own business, have a special "extra day" sale.

Send (or hand deliver) a gift to someone special in honor of the day

Whatever way you decide to spend it, don't let it just pass by without recognizing it. It's an extra day we're given, so spend it with care!

A message from Sandy Long:

Looking for leap year gift? Visit gift baskets for women and take a look at the beautiful selection of gift baskets!


It's a froggie year!

Review of the Romantic Comedy "Leap Year" - By Camilla Galea

The other day I watched a movie called Leap Year, a romantic comedy, starring one of my favourite actresses Amy Adams alongside Matthew Goode and Adam Scott.

Anna Brady, a no-nonsense, well-balanced young lady has been in a relationship with her boyfriend Jeremy for four long years, with still no sign of a marriage proposal. At a romantic dinner she was expecting a proposal but her hopes were dashed when it didn't eventuate. A devastated Anna learns of an ancient Irish tradition that allows a woman to propose to the man on the 29th of February in a leap year.

As Jeremy is in Ireland on a business trip she decides to jump on a plane to Ireland and pop the question herself. A series of mishaps sees her stranded in Wales where she meets the surly and unkempt Declan, who seems to delight in making her feel as unwelcome and uncomfortable as possible.

Anna only has two days to get to Dublin to meet Jeremy and she is appalled to find that there is no public transport available to take her so Declan reluctantly agrees to take her in his own car. Their clash of personalities causes many hilarious situations along the way.

By the time they arrive in Dublin, their opinions of each other have changed. However when she finally meets Jeremy he finally goes down on one knee and she accepts seemingly half heartedly while Declan slips away un-noticed.

After returning home to America she discovers that he main intention in wanting to marry her is to gain a promotion. Disillusioned she returns back to Ireland to find Declan.

The movie ends with Anna and Declan standing on and amazing Irish cliff top with the sun setting in the background. This scenery will captivate you and make want to go to Ireland for your next vacation.

Who am I? ABOUT Kathy Ostman-Magnuesn

I am a figurative artist and illustrator. I paint and sculpt female fantasy art and map faery tale adventures, testing erotica . I dream of beautiful women on canvas and art of exotic women.

I illustrated for Hay House Inc., Meditations for Women Who Do Too Much CARDS taken from Anne Wilson Schaef's book. I also illustrated for Neil Davidson, who was considered for the Pulitzer Prize in feature writing, and several other publications. My paintings are collected worldwide.

Represented by Monkdogz Urban Art, Inc.

New York, NY

Tel: 516-655-1000

Artist Statement:

I began my career at four years old, in the back seat of my parents car, as they travelled the countryside. I have been exhilarated and tormented by art ever since. I wake up in the morning and go to bed at night thinking about it.

I paint and sculpt women primarily; in their daily lives; in lives they might be afraid of; and in lives they wish they had. My goal has always remained the same, to hear them breathing and to know the passion I feel in my soul is met by theirs.

So I sing:

Hold me close dear angel

muster up a little tune

and rock me like a serpent

that rises to the moon.

In every single one of my paintings my objective is to know them. To let each one reveal their own vision or message. I am often astounded as their presence unfolds and I am met with who they are. I then realize that who 'they' are defines me as well. My hope is that my paintings & sculptures relate to you, their audience, and that they give you the message you need for your own heart and soul.
