New Delhi: The year 2020 is a leap year and Google today dedicated a Doodle to the 29th of February.
Google featured a cute doodle with “29” inscribed on the centre just in between “28 and “1” suggesting the dates of February and March.
Leap Day is an extra day – February 29th – added every four years to the calendar. It also helps keep calendars in alignment with the Earth and the Sun.
A leap day occurs in years that are multiples of four or can be evenly divided by 400. The date — February 29 — is added to most years that are divisible by 4, such as 2016, 2020, and 2024.
