A leap year is a calendar year that contains a bonus day added to a Gregorian calendar to keep it in sync with the astronomical year or seasonal year. It occurs every fourth year, and February 29th is marked as the leap day for that year. Since it occurs once in every four years, it is considered special and people try to do something to remember this day by. Since we are blessed with an extra 24 hours every fourth year, we should embrace it. 2020 is a leap year, and here are some inspirational leap day quotes and Feb 29 for you on how to spend this extra day.

"Today is an ephemeral ghost...A strange amazing day that comes only once every four years. For the rest of the time it does not 'exist.' In mundane terms, it marks a 'leap' in time, when the calendar is adjusted to make up for extra seconds accumulated over the preceding three years due to the rotation of the earth. A day of temporal tune up! But this day holds another secret — it contains one of those truly rare moments of delightful transience and light uncertainty that only exist on the razor edge of things, along a buzzing plane of quantum probability...A day of unlocked potential. Will you or won't you? Should you or shouldn't you? Use this day to do something daring, extraordinary and unlike yourself. Take a chance and shape a different pattern in your personal cloud of probability!" — Vera Nazarian

"Every leap year I like to jump. It’s a good way to get my daily exercise in every four years." — Jarod Kintz
