It’s a day we only get once every four years. In the U.S., it coincides with our Presidential election years. People born on this day are called “leaplings.” The history behind it is long and can seem complicated. And this Saturday, we get to experience our first Leap Day since 2016. We could be lame and suggest you use this extra day to review your insurance coverage or make an inventory of your personal belongings, but we are sure you have more exciting plans than that.
