Leap Day a special birthday for many

by webdev

February 28, 2012

There are few people who were born on February 29 who are older than 25. This funny date, known as Leap Day, only occurs every four years on the modern Gregorian calendar. While many Leap Day babies have to settle for a celebration on February 28 or March 1 most years, 2012 is special - it's a Leap Year.

Do you know someone born on a Leap Day? People in their 20s may only technically have celebrated 6 birthdays. While these people are "young," by Leap Day counts, there are just over 200,000 of them in the U.S. and nearly 5 million worldwide, according to Reuters.

Leapers face a number of challenges due to their rare birthdays, from computer issues to police suspicion when they are pulled over in traffic. That is why this year is an especially important time to celebrate these people in your life. Make the day extra special by surprising your friend or relative with a bouquet of birthday flowers like Teleflora's Rosy Birthday Present or spring flowers like the Tulip Treasure.
