IN 2012 a special year for people’s birthday today, Wednesday (29/2).

In leap years, they finally can celebrate the birthday on the date the right to their birth. Happy birthday for those of you who were born on leap year

Fall in a leap year every four years, where there is one more day of the year usually. If there is typically just 365 days per year, in a leap year there are 365.242 days.

National Geographic notes, calendar leap was first made in ancient Egypt. The ancient Roman Empire officials then enter the date to February 29 in the Gregorian calendar is the reference current calendar.

Calendar leap year brings its own uniqueness to the people who were born on February 29. Although they get older every year, some of them can only celebrate the past four years. Some are creative enough to celebrate at the date of February 28 or March 1.

As did Jennifer Whisnant, a resident of North Carolina. Daughter, Ava, was born on February 29, 2008. Each year, Whisnant Ava’s birthday party held on the weekend closest to the date of birth.

“We celebrate the birthday of Ava on a Saturday or on March 1, because if Ava was not born in a leap year, he certainly was born on March 1,” Whisnant said as quoted by the Daily Mail.

Born in a leap year also brought trouble to some people. In some countries, the computerized system of government and private agencies do not support the leap year calendar. Not a few people who were born on February 29, have resigned to accept a written birth certificate birth date March 1.

“In written form my insurance I was born on March 1, because they do not support the computerized system for leap year,” said Peter Brouwer, a resident of Vancouver, British Columbia.

Along with several colleagues who also was born on February 29, Brouwer forming Honor Society of Leap Year Day Babies. Brouwer said, celebrate a birthday only once in four years, became its own uniqueness they have.

“We do not feel the drama that happens when you realize you get older every year,” he joked. Happy birthday for those of you who were born on leap year
