Why Don't We Celebrate Leap Year?

Leap year is a year containing one additional day in order to keep the calendar year synchronized with the astronomical or seasonal year. Because seasons and astronomical events do not repeat in a whole number of days, a calendar that had the same number of days in each year would, over time, drift with respect to the event it was supposed to track. By occasionally inserting an additional day or month into the year, the drift can be corrected.

This is astronomical people!

So, I ask you, why don’t we celebrate?

I would love to see something similar to Mardi Gras going on in the streets, not just in New Orleans, but everywhere!

Well, a friend of mine came up with a solution! One way to celebrate this year that will be just as good and won’t end up with us getting arrested--Download Dark Corners by Liz Schulte.

She’s even made it free today and tomorrow on Amazon. (February 29th and March 1st)

This book is loaded with excitement, suspense, and anticipation. It kept me on the edge of my seat and let me tell you, it beats sitting in jail for hours after an all night binge where you partied way too hard, danced on tables, indecently exposed & publically humiliated yourself... On second thought, it might not be THAT much fun, but it’s a damn close second.
