    How to use "Leap day" in context?

    The day of February 29th is recognized as leap day or Leap Year. This day is different from all other days in the year because it has an extra day in it. This extra day is called a leap day.

    Leap days are important because they help to keep our calendar accurate. To keep our calendar accurate, every two years we have to add an extra day to the calendar. This is done by adding an extra day to February.

    So, every four years, we have to add an extra day (a leap month) to the calendar. The reason we do this is because our planet Earth takes about 365.
