2020 is a leap year… what does this mean?

Leap year occurs every four years. It serves to balance the calendar out with the seasons. According to the Gregorian calendar a year is made up of 365 days. However, the Earth’s orbit around the Sun takes approximately 365.25 days. Without this extra day, the calendar and seasons would gradually become out of sync!
