What is a Leap Year?

Have you ever wondered why we have Leap Years? It’s all related to how long Earth takes to orbit the Sun. It takes Earth approximately 365.25 days to orbit the Sun, meaning an extra quarter of a day needs to be accounted for. Leap Years were added to compensate for that extra time by adding a calendar day every four years. In turn, this makes it so our calendar year correctly matches the solar year. 

Except, it’s a bit more complicated than that since our rotation is not exactly 365.25. This means that if a year is divisible by 100, it is NOT a leap year unless it is also divisible by 400. So, Leap Years do not always happen every four years!

Why Do We Have a Leap Year?

Leap Years began over 2,000 years ago, first enacted by the Roman Emperor, Julius Caesar. With the assistance of his astronomer, the Julian calendar was born, and an extra day was added every four years. 

Without a leap year, our calendar year would fall out of sync with our astronomical year, causing seasons to drift over time. This would result in seasons occurring at different times relative to the calendar year. For example, our summers could start in December instead of June.
