The Significance Of Dates

 

We understand some dates carry more importance than others at times. 

 

Birthdays.  Anniversaries.  Holidays.  Certain other milestone events as well.  Although, February 29 comes just every fourth year, I wonder about the significance of this particular event that is an accumulation of the days and hours that are added to make things align in our calendar.   

 

A quick look at events in history brings forth some happy as well as sad moments.  I look back into my own personal history and if there were any significant events occurring on February 29 I don't recall...but just in case...I remain ready.  

 

When it comes to ActiveRain, this is my third leap day I am experiencing.  In 2012, I wrote a post with a list of 29 Reasons yet four years later in 2016, it was just another day.  Another market report about a Pasadena condo community which was fairly common in those days(and years).  And that's life, right? 

 

Business as usual along with welcoming the moments that become memories.  Sometimes when you least expect it.  Happy February 29.  Happy Saturday.   Enjoy each day.  Celebrate the moments.

Honestly the day has never meant anything to me. It's the people born on that date that I feel are the ones it affects.

Roy Kelley - that's interesting.

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty - that's another way of looking at it.

Sharon Tara - I imagine it would be a conversation-starter.

Michael Jacobs - Can you image if couples could only get married on February 29 and no other day in the year? Then, if it didn't work out before the next anniversary on February 29 during those first 1,098 days, their marriage was null and void? I'm sure attorneys wouldn't like it, but it would sure be less costly and stressful for all. Your thoughts?

Hi Michael- I would probably make a bigger deal out of this day if I had a close friend or relative who celebrated their birthday today. And then again...maybe not.

Michael,

We had a bit of summer weather yesterday, and we took advantage of it by staying outside...Today there is a chill in the air.  Leap year is inconsequential in our world...and extra day in the year, and like you said to enjoy and celebrate every moment.  A

I really do miss your market reports. It doesn't seem that long ago that you were putting out such wonderful reports. I didn't realize it was a leap year but I can see your significance over the years... (you still make me ponder)

Happy Saturday Michael Jacobs ...

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - well, I can't imagine such a thing but I am sure the efficiency of such an activity is not lost on me.  

Kathy Streib - that makes sense to me.  

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - that seems to be a consensus(at least of sorts)  

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - actially I occasionally miss writing market posts

This leap day came and went pretty quickly with hardly any notice.  But we did manage to have a wonderful dinner at Mama's Fish House which is always a memorable occasion.

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 - a good meal can make any day a bit more memorable.

Joan Cox - that's nice of you to notice and to say but I don't see a return...I won't say never but that may be appropriate in this situation.

 Hi Michael, happy Monday!  As far as February 28/29, guess I never paid any attention to it outside of just not liking the idea of it.  But as to 'moments' in time, yeah, important.

I know someone that has a Leap Year Birthday, so it was a special day.  Dates are important - it will be our 10 year Anniversary at our Real Estate Company on April 1st . . . but that is also April Fools Day!  I remember people telling me how foolish I was 10 years ago. . . wonder what they are thinking now! :)
