Pope Gregory XIII, changed the calendar in 1582, among the things he did, was to make February 29th Leap Year Day.


Welcome to leapyearday.com.

2016 was a big Leap Year for us, for the first time, we had more people checking us out from mobile, and on our Facebook feed, than we had on the website. So we've made some changes to the website to make it easier to navigate on mobile, and we've shifted our membership to a Facebook group.

You will still find all the fun Leap Day stuff we've always had here, and we will continue to operate the website, and add new info when we see another Leap Day on the calendar. That will be in the year 2020.

We have lots of pages of fun information about Leap Year Day.  Scroll through the carousel links above to access all of our pages.

Enjoy the website... learn something new about Leap Day... and don't forget... Anyone can be born in a Leap Year. We were born on Leap Year Day!

The Leap Day Lady,

You can scroll through the Knowledge Base carousel above to navigate through the site. We're pretty sure we have the internet's biggest collection of Leap Day facts and trivia.

These are some things we're concerned about:

  • Dictionaries still don't post Leap Year Day like they do New Year's Day. Leap Year and Leap Day are in all lower case letters. That needs changed.
  • Some websites still consider February 29 an invalid date!
  • Most calendar's still don't put LEAP DAY on February 29th. That needs changed.
  • We all have issues, but we leapers also face these... Leap Year Issues

Leap Day tends to be the calendar's forgotten day, and we will continue to try to help the world understand why these things are important, especially to people born on Leap Day. If you have a story to add, send it to us via the "contact us" link above.

Remember!  It's not just some people's birth day. Leap Day is everyone's extra day.

Enjoy the site!
