Happy Leap Year (And Extra Day of Work!)

Happy Leap Year Day! Today is the one day every four years where we get to pretend time is a construct and celebrate the fact that our calendar is a little wonky.

While I’m not a leap day baby, my birth year of 1996 is a leap year. It’s pretty cool having a birthday that only comes around once every four years. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be forever young, right? If someone was born February 29th, 1996, they would technically be 7 years old even though in reality they would be 28 today.

But let’s talk about the real question on everyone’s mind: do people born on leap days only get birthday presents every four years? I mean, imagine the savings on gift-giving! Unless you add 4 years’ value of presents in one day? But in all seriousness, leap year babies usually choose to celebrate their birthday on either February 28th or March 1st in non-leap years. So they still get to indulge in birthday cake and presents every year like the rest of us.

I think for most of us, we get to work the extra day in February. That’s fun right? Well, except if you’re on salary. It’s one extra day of the year you get to work while still being paid the same as any other year! Don’t you love that? Thankfully it only happens every 4 years.

Don’t forget it’s your RRSP deadline!
