2/29/20

Did you notice 29 days on your calendar this month? That’s because February 29 is a Leap Day, a day that comes around every 4 years to help synchronize the calendar year with the length of time it takes the Earth to complete its orbit around the sun - which is 365.25 days! It’s an extra 24 hours to do whatever you want, without feeling guilty that you don’t have the time.

In the words of Chandler Bing – “Can I BE anymore excited?!”

Some fun facts about Leap Year:

* Leap Year was first introduced by Julius Caesar in 45 BC.

* The odds of being born on Leap Day are about 1 in 1500. I actually knew someone in elementary school who's little brother was born on a leap year.

* There are about 187,000 people in the US, and 4 million people worldwide who were born on Leap Day.

* Leap year babies get their driver's licenses when they are officially four years old (or 16 calendar years)!

* How do you know if it’s going to be a Leap Year? Most years that can be divided evenly by 4 are Leap Years, with the exception on Century Years. Century Years are not Leap Years unless they can be evenly divided by 400.

So what are you going to do with your extra day this year? On behalf of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and the Digital, Blu-ray & DVD releases of Friends – we wanted to wish you and your family a Happy Leap Year. Since this day only comes around once every 4 years – it’s a day to sit back, relax and binge with your “friends.”
