Google celebrates Leap Day with a Doodle

Google released a doodle on Thursday, to mark Leap Day. This unique doodle depicts a frog marked with the leap day date set amid a setting involving the dates February 28 and March 1. The Leap Day vanishes as the frog jumps. This setting is illustrated against the background of a pond with stones and leaves where the word Google can be identified in the background.

The description with this moving illustration reads Ribbiting news, its Leap Day, February 29th, only occurs about every 4 years, to keep our calenders in alignment with the Earth and the Sun. Enjoy this bonus day of February – Happy Leap Day!

Leap Day’s origin can be traced back to over 2000 years ago. This was done to align the standard Gregorian calendar with the solar calendar and it also takes into account the fact that the Earth takes slightly over 365 days to orbit the sun that is 365.2422 days to be exact.

According to the Gregorian calendar which is the world’s most widely used calendar, each leap year consists of 366 days instead of 365. This extra day, known as Leap Day, adjusts for the fact that an astronomical year is slightly less than 365 days and 6 hours. The last leap day occurred in 2020, and the next will arrive in 2028. Leap year babies will get the opportunity to celebrate their birthday on February 29 this year as the day comes only once every 4 years.

Anthony a town in Texas, USA proudly proclaims itself as the Leap Year Capital of the World and hosts a festival every Leap Year to celebrate. Just like the Leap Day helps adjust our calendar, leap seconds are occasionally added to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) to sychronise atomic clocks with the Earth’s slowing rotation. Leap Day has featured in literature, movies, and music. One notable example is the 2010 romantic comedy film Leap Year.
