**8. What is a Leap Year?**

We will first examine the history of leap year before talking about what it is. The Earth rotates around the sun as we all know and takes 365.25 days to complete the rotation. But what we usually do is round off the number and make it 365. In order to make up the extra time which is 0.25 days, we add an extra day every four years. So, in this way, 0.25 × 4 becomes 1 full day. Although the solar year always has 365 days, it’s crucial to synchronize the months and seasons when there are leap years, which happen every four years. A few more facts related to leap year are:

**The First Leap Year –** The first leap year was observed in Britain in the year 1752. The year lost 11 days in September as they followed the Gregorian calendar by Britain and her colonies. In the year 1752, we had to have extra days in February which is divided by four. We can also see that the Julian calendar used the leap year before 1752.

**Number of Days in Leap Year –** There are 365 days in a common year but if there is a leap year, the number of days would change to** 366.** This is because the extra days are added to the month of February. Must read How many Months of the Year have 28 days?
