Ever wondered WHY we have leap years and what February 29 is all about? There's plenty of info on the Web explaining the scientific background behind leap years. You'll have a hard time finding one more entertaining and humorously done as this video on YouTube by C.G.P. Grey.

I was definitely surprised at just how complicated a process it was to come up with the current system we have for creating our calendar. Check it out. You'll be amazed how much you learn in 4 minutes!

Hi Denise-I just read something on this the other day and I was surprised myself. I had no idea how come we had a leap year. I learned something new so the day wasn't wasted.  Now the guy in the video talks so fast that it could drive you a little crazy if you listened to him for longer than the four min. Smiling

That's exactly how I felt Sharon. Definitely quite the learning curve finding out exactly what the science is behind what was otherwise just another day. 

You're quite right. This guy certainly does talk fast and certainly packs a lot into those 4 mins!
