Happy Leap Year!

Hello Penguins,

Happy Leap Year!

Today is 29th February, 2016. The date (29th February) only occurs every four years.

Hear's why:
Every four years an extra day is added to the calendar. So instead of 365 days, there'll be 366 days!
But why?
It takes 365 1/2 days for the Earth to orbit around the sun. So instead of having one quarter of a day each year, four of the quarter days are added up together, and an extra day is added to the calendar every four years, so it makes this equation;
1/4 day x 4 = 1 whole day
That day is 29th February! 
 That wraps it up for the science lesson!
