My friend Andy celebrates his 10th birthday today. Yeah, he was born on February 29th, way back in 1968 (which really makes him 40 today)
Since I hear that Andy is feeling a bit glum about turning 40, I hope to cheer him up with some facts about Leaplings to demonstrate how special he is. Here is some information I got off LeapZine :
Your chance of being born on Leap Year Day is about 1 in 1461. Put another way, only 0.0684% of the world's population are Leapers. The table below shows how few of us there are.
Leap Year Day Babies...
per 1461 people... 1
per million people... 684
in the USA... about 200,000
in the world... about 4 million
So, Andy, I hope you celebrate your 10th birthday in style! And being 40 isn’t that bad – most of your friends can attest to that.
