FEBRUARY 29 IS QUITE VALID!
FEBRUARY 28 or MARCH 1 INSTEAD of FEBRUARY 29? NO WAY!
Some of us have encountered websites who do not offer the date February 29 as an option to choose. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE! They lack Leap Year Day Awareness.
If you know of a business or government agency lacking Leap Year Day Awareness please let us know. Help us help them. Local businesses, even big government agencies, have problems with February 29.

HELP THE WORLD RECOGNIZE LEAP YEAR DAY FEBRUARY 29 IS A VALID DATE!
Many of us have landed on a website that required us to input our date of birth. When we select February 29 a little pop-up window informs us that February 29 is not a valid date, try again. Has this ever happened to you? If so, please give us the web address to that site so we can help them understand what they need to do.
It's quite frustrating when our birth date is not recognized as the very thing it is. If you'd like to help us educate the world of this quadrennial date please email me and let me know what you've experienced. Click Here to Email Raenell

Leap Day Deniers
Everybody born on Leap Day has encountered a Leap Day Denier. Most commonly it happens when registering an account on website, and the website states that February 29th is an invalid date. But it happens everywhere. A computer programmer might leave the mark of Leap Day Denial on any computerized form. Sometimes it's obvious, date formatting errors are reported, and sometimes no error is reported, and we're just left to guess we've encountered another Leap Day Denial.
Last Leap Year, The Register featured us, when we complained about Microsoft's Leap Day bugs, and a big toy store chain that denies children born on Leap Day a birthday wish, in three years out of four. We haven't heard from the toy store -- but Microsoft was back at it again in 2012, it's security software failed to accommodate Leap Day.
We will use this page to document more Leap Day Deniers as we find out about them. If you encounter one, please contact us and attach a screenshot if you can.
