It’s Leap year!!
If you are pregnant and deliver your baby this day, you will have to determine whether to celebrate that baby’s birthday on February 28 or March 1 on off years. Not all moms-to-be want to have a leap year baby, but some cultures find they are lucky! When leap year babies start to age and get up there in years, they can always start counting only their actual birth days towards their real age! There is a bonus!
For the rest of us, the leap year represents an EXTRA day to do something. Here is a list of activities TwinCities.com assembled as part of a larger article about career resolutions. You can consider doing one or more of these today. Note that none of these activities require a full day, but that is the beauty of it. You can feel accomplished without being overwhelmed from the pressure to maximize the entire day! Take a look and pick something fun to do today.
HAPPY LEAP YEAR!
