Leap into February 29th, the extra day for Leap Year 2024!

Posted: Thursday, February 29, 2024. 3:10 pm CST.

By Jose Luis Cruz: Hold on tight, Belize – we’ve got ourselves an extra day, today! Even we at Breaking Belize News (BBN) almost forgot to honor the occasion. Today, February 29th, 2024, marks the occurrence of that special four-year phenomenon known as Leap Day, or a Leap Year. This calendar adjustment is all about keeping our seasons on track, as the Earth takes slightly more than 365 days to complete its orbit around the sun.

While the origins of Leap Day go way back to Julius Caesar’s time, it remains a fun and unusual event. Here in Belize, those born on February 29th (“leaplings”) get to celebrate their actual birth date with even greater enthusiasm than usual. And for the rest of us, it’s a chance to seize the extra 24 hours with gusto!

Leap Day holds a certain significance and can serves as a memorable occasion, so why not mix it up? With the above in mind, try out a new Belizean dish, explore a hidden corner of our beautiful country, or reach out and make someone’s day brighter. It’s an extra opportunity to make memories and embrace the unique rhythm of life here in Belize.

So, whether you’re a leapling celebrating your special day or just enjoying the bonus, let’s make this Leap Day count, Belize, especially as it winds down!
