Guest: Raenell Dawn, Cofounder of the Honor Society of Leap Year Babies  Today, February 29th, is Leap Day. Once every four years, an extra day is added to the calendar to account for the fact Earth’s complete trip around the sun takes 365 days … and 6 hours. We’ve had a Leap Day on the calendar every four years since Julius Caesar decreed it back in 46 B.C.  You’d think we’d be used to it by now. But it still feels rare enough that people born on Leap Day are a novelty and some organizations won’t even recognize it as a valid birthday.
