Leap year Paradox

What is a Leap Year ?
A year, occurring once every four years, which has 366 days including 29 February as an intercalary day

Recently one of friend is blessed with a baby gal and the most amazing fact is the baby was born on a "LEAP YEAR"well the parents of the kid are happy but I was wondering the series of things that might the kid face.what do you call the special kid born on LEAP YEAR drum rolls and they ar called as "Leapsters"

First and foremost you will tend to celebrate your birthdays once in 4 years.Wow that's really crazy thing I could get imagine your parents tell you that today isn't your birthday on 28th of Feb till its A LEAP YEAR,however some might celebrate it on 28th.

Just imagine if your going to get your driving license and last time u celebrated your birthday was on 16 and u got to get your license on 28th saying you would a adult to get a license It would be really frustration.Suppose if you are in foreign country and you couldn't get a beer also if aren't 18.

Leapsters keep two sets of ages, annual and quadrennial. We mark time between real birthdays in fourths and halves. Leap-year days serve a purpose, as we know: The extra day tacked onto the end of February every four years accounts for Earth’s spinning around the sun five hours, 48 minutes, and 45 seconds longer than 365 days.

I can’t help but think about my life more deeply every four years. Thinking in four-year periods isn’t uncommon—we have Olympics and elections on leap years, after all. But, each February 29, I pause to take a life inventory. 16 to 20 marked the time from school to college. From 28 to 32, you become a father/mother .
