IT'S ABOUT TIME
It is About Time, and it's about time we recognize that!
Leap Years happen EVERY four years like it or not.
(considering the exception to the rule )
The way humans have kept track of time has been through many changes.
February 29, Leap Year Day, is everyone's extra day. Everyone using the Gregorian Calendar will have a Leap Year Day.
Our goal is for February 29
To receive the recognition it deserves on the calendar by proclaiming February 29 Leap Year Day. February 29 represents balance and harmony between the earth and our calculation of time.
What better way, in this day and age, to celebrate balance and harmony than with a special day to promote it...at least every 4 years with an extra day to do it.
February 29 is probably THE most important day on the calendar because of the position it holds and the duty it performs. If we did not have an extra day every four years we would not be able to predict, with such precision, what seasons holidays will land in.
This extra day has one purpose, one reason for being. It is there to maintain balance between the calendar and the spinning earth. Let's Celebrate the Spin and recognize Leap Year Day!
When is Leap Year Day?
If calendar publishers put the words LEAP DAY on February 29, more people would remember it, and maybe even celebrate it. An extra day to live! An extra day to have fun! An extra day to love! An extra day to do something good for someone else.
In the U.S.A. February 2nd has "Ground Hog Day" in ink and February 29 is surely more deserving of the words LEAP YEAR DAY - or - LEAP DAY. If it were not for this extra day, we Americans wouldn't know when to expect that groundhog so precisely.
But alas, this Leap Year, again, a very small percentage (maybe a 1/2 of a percentage) of calendars have those words on them. I received a bank calendar from a fellow Leap Day baby that has they words LEAP DAY on February 29. I have not seen or heard of any others.
And those List of Special Days that are available in the size and shape of a business card do not have LEAP DAY on them. It's probably the original Special Day. And it is a celebration of the calendar too! So we need to help those who make calendars understand why it is important for them to include this day in writing, and on the lists, every four years.
What To Do With This Extra Day
For everyone who uses the Gregorian Calendar, Leap Year Day can be a World Holiday. It can be listed every Leap Year on every calendar that recognizes its existence.
We suggest using this one day every fourth year for doing something for someone else. Volunteer where you know help is needed. Give a hand to someone you know could use it. Go through an organization, or just mow the lawn of a neighbor in need. But do something for someone else.
We suggest the different Awareness groups throw Leap Year Balls to raise money for their cause. Just throw a divinely elegant Ball with dancing to the Leap Year Waltz (a delightful piece of music) and maybe even a proposal or two.
In the late 1800s and early 1900s Leap Year Balls provided women the opportunity to propose to her man. They were elegant and lovely parties.
Throw a casual Leap Year Party with the same theme, still raising money for your cause. Leap Year Balls and Leap Year Parties may happen any time throughout the Leap Year. The entire year is a Leap Year.
Therefore plenty of dates to choose from on the calendar throughout the Leap Year.
Please be sure to capitalize the words Leap Year and Leap Year Day and Leap Day. You will be one of many around the world Leaping into action for Leap Year Day February 29, and we appreciate your help.
