what countries have leap day on the 24th of February?
i assume that all countries that follow the gregorian calendar have leap day on the 29th. Some countries don't follow the gregorian calendar, and so they don't even have february, usually. There is in fact more than one calendar.

How do people celebrate their annual birthday, if they were born on a leap day?
Most celebrate it on the 28th or 1st of march, or the nearest weekend. if you wanna have fun you can say you're literal age, so if you're 16 you could say you're 4 bc you've only had 4 bdays. but just celebrate it around that time in February
Question about the leap year and adding 1 day to February?
A year isn't exactly 365 days long. It's 365.25 days long.
So by counting off a year every 365 days, we fall behing 1/4 of a day each year. After four years, we're a full day behind, so we add that day into February.
Actually, the year isn't exactly 365.25 days long. It's more like 365.24, so we don't add a day to years that end in 00 (1900, 2000, 2100, etc.).
And that's not exact, either, so we also DO add the day to the 100s that are also divisible by 400 (1600, 2000, 2400, etc.)
And so on.
What do schools do with kids who are born on leap day?
Depends on the country. Some countries say that a leapling (someone born feb 29th) officially ages on 28th of February when not in a leap year as it is the last day of the month they were born in while others say the baby officially ages on 1st of March as this is the day after 28th Feb which is always the day before their birthday, leap year or not.
D.O.B. will always be recorded 29 February YYYY though
How do people born on Leap Day/Year celebrate their birthdays?
You can pick either one. Some people just go 365 days from the last time they celebrated. Your birthday never changes but the day you celebrate can be any time you want. Same thing if you're born on a holiday.
editing - as the young lady below me suggests - the day you ceelebrate is a personal decision. Pick a weekend if you want. It's your party!
If you was born on Leap Year day do you like to be born on that day or not?
Leap year isn't stupid, it's just that in my opinion it kind of does suck to have your birthday come every four years. Sometimes friends don't quite remember if that specific year is a leap year, and its going to make a person feel terrible if they are asked when their birthday is by their own friends. And sometimes it can get confusing.
Righties: Are you upset that black history month lasted one extra day this year due to leap day?
Actually, I always loved Black History Month when my kids were in grade school. They attended a Catholic School that was 1/2 Black and 1/2 White. I always loved helping the kids select the people that they would write their reports about, and learning about Black people who had shaped our history. (By the way, I am White.)
Unfortunately, slavery is a sad part of American History. Surely we can move on after 150 years!
Let's all enjoy Black History Month. The extra day is a bonus!
If a man refuses a marriage proposal on a leap day does he have to pay woman money as a penalty?
A little secret. Leap Year is a movie based in the rather backward Hollywood version of Ireland. It has no grasp on reality.
In the real Ireland, 29th Feb is just a normal day, albeit one that only comes round every 4 years.
We don't keep pigs in our kitchens.
We have piped water and electricity.
We don't hate English people.

How accurate does leap day reflect the correct orbit of earth around the sun?
There is a leap century as well. Every 200 years, we skip a leap day, so February 28, 2000, was followed by March 1.
Between the leap year every 4 years and that, the next adjustment occurs in several milennia, so don't worry about it.
I haven't heard if there is going to be a special ticket for that day.... you may want to call Disney customer service and ask.
If not... then get there MEGA early and get into the park when the open that way you can be in and have your ticket validated for that day of entry and then you will more than likely be able to leave and re-enter when you want (remember to get your hand stamped). If they restrict entry later it will be to new entry people only, not people with a hand stamp that have been in earlier in the day (at least this is how it has worked in the past during busy holidays).
well i was born on independence day and i know of someone who got married on 29th feb (leap day) but i dont know anyone who was born on that day.
Its good for you, every 4 years, you grow older by just 1 year.
Are you wearing yellow and blue today to celebrate the Leap Day miracle?
I'm wearing a bright yellow shirt--had to borrow from my partner b/c I usually only wear drabs--& a blue dress underneath it & my bright yellow galoshes.
Boy am I a sight for sore eyes. AAMOF, with the clothes I'm wearing I could heal the blind!
No where's my cigarettes I was promised?
What are the odds of being born and dying on leap day?
Previous events have no effect on the odds of future events.
The odds of someone, in the future, playing two lottery games with 1-in-1,000 odds, and winning both, is 1-in-1,000,000. However, once the person wins the first lottery, the odds of then winning both is 1-in-1,000, just like anyone else.
If you flip a coin and it comes up "heads" 100 times in a row, it's still 50-50 that the next flip will be "tails", despite the emotional response of "it's due". (This ignores the possibility that the coin isn't balanced, and is weighted to come up heads most of the time.)
Just because someone is born on February 29 doesn't make the odds that they will die on February 29 any different than anyone else, regardless of their birthday.
