its february 29. what a weird day.

when it was the year 2001, the chinese believd it was year 4699. the hebrews believed it was 5762 and muslims thought it was 1422. what weirdness. calendars are so different. and then the gregorian calendar that people use most now have to add a february 29 every 4 years. but that feb 29 doesn’t always work, so every 100 years, they dont have it. unless the year can be divided by 400 and they keep it. but that doesn’t work either. so every 4000 years they do feb 29 also.

heres how it became so. julian calendar was introduced in 46 BC year 709 to romans. julian calendar was off by 11 minutes a year, so in 1582 there was a 10 day error. so pope gregory xiii said the day following oct 4 would be oct 15. they skipped 10 days. and so officially no one was born in france, italy, spain, or portugal between oct 5 – oct 14. britain adopted the gregorian calendar in 1752, so they dropped 11 days out of september. sept 3 – sept 13, 1752. and the new years for 1751 was held in march. it went like this. march 24, 1750 and the next day was march 25, 1751. wonderful.

its not february 29. its march 1!!!!
