Why do we have Leap Years?

|| || , || Leave a comments

We normally think of a year as consisting of 365 days, but in fact the Earth completes slightly more than 365 rotations in the time it takes to complete a single orbit of the Sun: 365.256 to be exact.To mop up this difference, which amounts to just over a quarter of a day per year,an extra day is added to the calendar every four years.
