Taking a plunge

The fact that you can make a slight adjustment to an incomplete calendar by simply adding a day every fourth year, sounds like a solution so nuts, but at the same time pragmatic, that just imagining how anybody came up with it in the first place, makes my head spin. 

I had a school friend who was born on a leap day, so the whole wackyness of this phenomenon, has occupied my mind for the longest time! I like the English term 'Leap Day' though. In Danish it's called 'skuddag'  which sounds more like a day where you should go shoot someone. 

Get dizzy or take a leap! (and please don't shoot anyone)
