2012, LEAP YEAR!!

                             

Fun cool facts about Leap Year Day February 29

OK, let’s learn how to say it correctly.
Someone born on February 29 was born on Leap Day,
or Leap Year Day. They were NOT born ON Leap Year.
Leap Year is the year we are in; like 2012 or 2016.

Anyone can be born IN a Leap Year. Leap Year lasts
all year. Leap Day Babies were born ON Leap Day.
THAT is what is rare. In fact, the odds are 1 in 1461!

You don’t have to be born on February 29 to enjoy Leap Day.
|It’s everyone’s extra day!


28 DAYS HAS FEBRUARY
 
Twenty-eight days has February
A very light load for one month to carry
The other months have 2 and 3 more
Thirty and thirty-one being their big score

In Leap Years the days they do vary
Making 29 days in February

WHAT DO LEAP DAY BABIES
CALL THEMSELVES?

We are Leap Day babies,
not Leap Year babies.
Anyone can be born IN a Leap Year.
We were born ON Leap Day.
There’s a big difference there!
If you were born on February 29
You are a Leap Day baby.

IF YOU ARE A LEAP DAY BABY...

You will hear the same questions for the rest of your life!
If you haven’t heard these yet, you will!  Be ready.

    1. When do you celebrate?
    2. How old are you really?
    3. What’s it like to not get a birthday?

Number 3 - Of course we get a birthday. We age, we
celebrate that age every year, and we "get" a birthday.

The question they are really asking is:

    What is it like to have a birthday that’s
    not on the calendar every year?

Just explain to them that you do "get" a birthday. Just
because it’s not on the calendar doesn’t mean you don’t
get one. It doesn’t mean we don’t age either.

Let them know what it feels like to you. Be honest.

Sometimes, when they know what it’s all about, they
wish they were a Leap Day baby too!

IF I WAS BORN ON LEAP DAY,
HOW OLD AM I REALLY?

 
When speaking of your Leap-age, it is incorrect to say
you are 2 "years" old when you are really 8 "years" old.

You are 2 LEAP Years old. Or - even better, just simply 2.
Keeping it simple has the best impact.

When talking about a friend or relative born on Leap Day
it is best to say "This is my Aunt, she is only 5."

And watch the facial expressions change.

Don’t say "5 ’years’ old" that doesn’t make sense.

BUT, stopping at the number has a bigger impact.

I was born in 1960, but I turned 12 this last Leap
Year 2008! See the difference? It’s fun too. I will
be 13, again, next Leap Year 2012!
