    Leap Year

    This may sound weird, but just think. Let's say you were born Febuary 29th on a leap year. Would that mean you would have to wait four years for you to turn one year old? Think about it for a while.

    ^^ actually no, they celebrate it either on the first, or on the 28th of february... trust, my grandma has this situation... so no, actually a "birthday" comes once every 365 days, so even if the specific DATE isn't there the full YEAR will be... did that explain it?

    Yeah, I know someone who has it on the 29th but they celebrate it on both the 28th of February and the 1st of March. But they only get one party, on the 28th.

    Yeah, but you'd have to live for 60 years before you can drive. )
    And you'd be a kid for 51 years, before you become a teenager. *:+

    That was a bump. But to keep this from being only mini-modding.


    It can't be the celebration every 265 days or else, every leap year we'd celebrate our birthday one day earlier. Say you were born on July 7th, 2003. 365 days later it would be, July 6th, because 2004 is a leap year. so it has 366 days.
