Did You Know? A person
born on February 29
may be called a
"leapling" or a "leap year
baby". In non-leap years,
some leaplings
celebrate their birthday
on either February 28
or March 1, while others
only observe birthdays
on the authentic date
every 4 years.
Famously born on the
29th in 1692, John
Byrom (shown), was an
English poet and the
inventor of a
revolutionary system
of shorthand.
