Leap Day

Where: Countrywide
When: 29th February
Time: All day


February is always the shortest month, but every four years it gains an extra day in order to regulate the discrepancy in the length of the solar year which would otherwise result in the calendar gradually going adrift. Leap Day is traditionally the only day on which women propose marriage to men!

Helpful Hints

Next leap day is in 2020.
