That Crazy Extra Day in February

We had the funniest discussion last week at my hair salon. Several ladies were talking about Leap Year--why do we have this extra day every 4 years? I went on to tell them that a year is 365 1/4 days long; when you have 4 quarter days, you get an extra day--thus that extra day comes in February every 4 years (that's the very short version of our conversation-now I'm a little confused!) They looked at me like I made up the whole thing.

Basically, we have an extra day in February this year, so what are you going to do with it? We made a fun list of 29 different things to do on leap day.

Leap Day List

What are you plans for Leap Day? Do you know someone whose birthday is once every 4 years? My plans include getting a selfie while leaping (I might need to wear Depends for that one,) relax with some homemade hot cocoa (I make the best crock pot hot cocoa,) rid my kitchen of all sweets for a healthy March, and clean out some closets--all things that make me happy. Rachel said she's going to work at the store and then try a new hair color, #14 on the list. Maybe a rainbow color! This should be fun!

Whatever you decide to do, you should definitely make plans to come to the Wreath Stand. It's our 5th Saturday Celebration! If you've been to one before, you'll know that this is one you don't want to miss!

Until next time,
