Does your birthday, or anyone you know's birthday fall on the 29th of February? If so, what day do you or they, celebrate a birthday on when it's not a leap year?
I have had this discussion with two people in as many days and they both say, if it was them, they'd choose to celebrate on the 28th of February. I find this mind boggling. If you're born on the 29th of February, it's the day after the 28th right? I understand the argument about being born in February and therefore wanting to celebrate in February, but if it hadn't have been a leap year on the date in question, they would have been born on the 1st of March. It's a fact. Mind you; that then begs the question, should people born on the 1st of March celebrate their birthdays on the 29th of February when it's a leap year? After all, it is the day after the 28th of February, which is when they were actually born. Interesting, but it would open up a whole can of worms which I tend to like to steer clear of; so, back to my original question. Which day would you choose to celebrate on, if your birthday fell on the 29th of February? I'm sticking with the 1st of March; it's the only logical answer. J
