If the year is divisible by 100 then it is a Leap Year if it is also divisible by 400.

"I'd like to share with fellow Leapers the wonderful celebration I enjoyed when my 16th birthday rolled around in the year 2000. My friends helped me throw a ""Sweet 16"" party at my church and about 180 people had a ball at it. Everyone dressed in the kind of clothing they would have worn when they were 16. I wore a poodle skirt -- there were beatniks, hippies, athletes, cheerleaders, you name it. A lot of old letter jackets emerged. Guests also brought photos of themselves at 16, which we displayed on a big board. Decorations related to my teenage era in the early Fifties -- with an imitation jukebox, old record covers, tulle centerpieces on the tables, and of course Sweet 16 banners, etc. It was an open invitation potluck dinner (with dishes in lieu of gifts), so the food kept pace with the attendance. We supplied drinks, a couple of hams, and cake. The program included sharing about the significance of Leap Year, a performance by a singing group that included some original lyrics, and dancing to old tunes. I was ""crowned"" with a tiara. Everybody thought it was one of the best parties ever! I commend the idea to any Leap Day Baby whose 16th birthday is approaching! FYI, I celebrate the end of February on off-years. My license plate is LEAP 4. Best wishes, Ann Wood "
