100 year old woman turns 25 years old on Leap Year birthday!

By Kathie J on February 28, 2024

There are only about 5 million people in the world born on February 29th. A Leap Year happens every 4 years when an extra day is added to the month of February.

Mary Lea Forsythe is turning 100 years old on February 29th but since it is a leap year birthday…she is actually turning, “25!”

See Mary and here how she plans to celebrate her youth here.

According to NASA, the Earth does not orbit the sun in 365 days…it is actually 365 days, five hours, 48 minutes and 46 seconds. If we did not add the extra day to make up for the hours…eventually the calendar could get wonky and we could have winter in July.
