you're more impressed by something that happens every year vs only 9 times a century 8-o now 3/14/16 may be a little more special

Meh. Leap Day 2000 was a once-in-a-millenium event.

Feb 29, 2000

There's a leap year every 4 years.

But, since the earth's orbit isn't actually exactly 365.25 days, every century (100AD, 200AD, etc.) you skip the leap year.

But, since that doesn't exactly get the correction right, either, every 1,000 years you skip the skipping of the leap year.

Hence, Leap Day 2000 was a once-in-a-millenium event.

March 14 is a spectacular holiday. But not because of Pi day.
