Have a Party for Leap Year Day

Updated on July 12, 2014

When a birthday is every four years

According to astrologers, those born under the sign of Pisces on February 29 have unusual talents and personalities reflecting their special status.

They would certainly need some talent in avoiding disappointment, it must be hard to celebrate a birthday only once every four years.

These days, most Leapers hold their birthday festivities on 1st March - so much easier

Were you born on a Leap Year?

When's your birthday?

You probably think that a birthday is a celebration of your birth date - but it's not. It's a celebration of you getting through another year. One more year under your belt (or under the bridge).

One year is one complete revolution by the earth around the sun, and that's 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 46 seconds.

So what's the best date to celebrate your birthday? Just add 365 and (almost) one quarter of a day to the hour of your birth.

Have a Leap Year Day Birthday Party

Make it a good one - it's only every four years

Have a Happy Leap Year Day Birthday with a Leap Year theme.

FrogsFrogs are perfect for a Leap Year celebration.

Green for the Leap Year Birthday Theme

When you think of frogs, you think of green, so decorate green.

Starting with green add yellow and blue. Use these three colours to decorate the table, walls, doors, and ceilings.

Weave party streamers in these colours together to drape around windows and to looped across the ceiling. Don't forget the balloons! Lots and lots of balloons.

February 30th ?

In 1700 Sweden planned to convert from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar. So 1700, which should have been a leap year in the Julian calendar, was not a leap year in Sweden.

However, 1704 and 1708 became leap years by mistake. This left Sweden out of synchronization with both the Julian and the Gregorian calendars, so the country reverted back to the Julian calendar.

February 30, 1712, came into existence in Sweden when the Julian calendar was restored and 2 leap days were added that year.

Sweden's final conversion to the Gregorian calendar occurred in 1753, when a 10-day correction was applied so that February 17 became March 1 that year.
