[T]he calendar would be ‘scrambled,'” by Dan Vergano: “[T]he Earth doesn’t circle the sun in exactly 365 days [but] 365.2425 days … Those extra digits add up to almost a full day, but not quite, every four years. … Caesar first added a leap day to the calendar every four years around 46 B.C. … [A]bout 5 million people worldwide share a Feb. 29 birth date, making them ‘leapsters’ or ’29ers,’ according to the Honor Society of Leap Year Day Babies.”
