One, born on Feb 29, 1904, with the worlds longest name, 746 letters in all.

The Honor Society of Leap Year Day Babies, is a  free membership  birthday club for people born on February 29th. Until 2016, we maintained our own member database, but now we've shifted to a Facebook group, where membership is also open to interested family members of people born on February 29th.

The society got it's start in 1997. We maintained a membership system on this website, and over 10,000 people from all over the world have joined. Their profiles are still available to browse on our  members page.  

We also keep a Facebook page, which is more focused on Leap Day related news, and a  birth family search service. If you know somebody born on February 29th, but are not sure of their name, you can list the facts that you have. 

One of the main goals of the Honor Society is to promote Leap Day awareness.  During our first four Leap Years, we put a lot of effort into connecting journalists with Leapers, and stories about our members have appeared in newspapers around the world.  Now, in the age of social media, it's so much easier for newspapers to find their Leap Day sources, that we no longer offer this service, though we may still make connections with individual members.

If you have a story to tell, please consider joining our Facebook group, and posting it there.  You may also post on our Facebook Page.

We aim to have the largest collection of Leap Day knowledge on the internet here on the leapyearday.com website.  Please don't hesitate to contribute anything Leap related.  Use the Contact Us form to send us a message, you can use the form to attach a file.  You can also drop stuff in the mail.

What we're looking for:

  • Stories: any story related to a Leap Day experience, or something that happened to you because you are a Leaper.
  • Stuff: any piece of Leap Day memorabilia... cards, signs, objects, anything... send a photo.
  • Help: Feel  like volunteering to a great cause? The Honor Society is looking for art, design and web page editors. We are always recruiting!
