Leap Year 2020

On Saturday is February 2020, the day that only comes every fourth (or, sometimes: eighth), year. Do you know anyone born that day, or do you have any special traditions for that day?

Doesn't mean anything to me, I only knew of one person who was born that day back at school. If one of my children had been born 5 days later they would have had that misfortune, luckily not the case.

No traditions over here, just another day.

I know or have known a number of people born on holidays and/or other noted calendar dates, but no Leap Year kids far as I know.

My grandmother was actually born on Feb. 29th but that's all I know of.

It's very important in my neck of the woods. That's the day we do the lottery to ensure our bountiful harvest. Some of the town thinks it's a bunch of nonsense, but we've never had a shortage since the tradition began.

I like to look at the “on this day” sections in the newspaper and Facebook. They have that every day but on February 29, I can only see them once every 4 years so I think that’s pretty cool.

How long does it generally take you guys, on average, to build a giant wicker man?

Wicker? I reckon those kind of carpentry skills would earn you a witchcraft accusation round here. We just regular people.
