5 million people in the world population celebrate their birth every four years because of a leap year

<p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr">Arab Weather - Saad Bukhari - A leap year is a leap year whose number of days is 366 days, not 365 days, similar to the number of days in a regular year, and every four years, like last year, 2020, it was leap.</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <strong>How did the calculation come about?</strong><br /> Simply it takes the Earth in its rotation around the sun 365 days and a quarter of a day and a few minutes (6 hours and a few minutes).<br /> But the number of days of the calendar year adopted for the calendar is 365 days without adding a quarter difference.<br /> Where it was decided to collect these differences from the quarters and add them in the fourth year of February every four years in order to match the calendar with the astronomical cycle.<br /> However, we found differences in a few minutes outside the quarter (6 hours and a few minutes) affect the calendar over the long years.<br /> In 1582, scholars announced the Gregorian calendar, which dealt with the matter by adding a new condition to calculate a leap year, which is that a year is leap when it is divided by 100 and at the same time by 400 as well.<br /> Therefore, we find that the leap year is deleted three times every 400 years because the division condition is not fulfilled, in order to compensate for the difference in minutes.</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> Therefore, applying the leap year accounts is very important so that the seasons and Christmas holidays come on time.</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> In ancient times, February was the last month in the Roman or Julian calendar. So this day has been added to the month of February.</p><h3 style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <strong>As for those born on this day, February 29:</strong></h3><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> Due to the repetition of this date every four years, those born on February 29th today are not many, but they will only be able to celebrate their birth every four years.<br /> According to statistics, out of every 1,461 people, only one is born on this day, which is equivalent to only about 5 million people out of the world&#39;s population of 7.5 billion.<br /> Therefore, the newborn is registered on this day in official certificates according to the customs and laws of the country in which he resides. Most countries and governments register him as born on March 1, while some countries such as New Zealand register him as born on February 28.</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> Strange customs on a date like this:<br /> Because of the scarcity of this day, it was associated with a number of customs and rituals for some, the most famous and widespread of which are related to the reversal of the marriage proposal tradition in which the man requests the hand of the woman he loves, so the woman is allowed to request marriage from the man she loves, and he must accept her request.</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <strong>Written by Saad Bukhari</strong></p>
