When Does a Leap Year Baby Celebrate His Birthday?

A baby born on February 29, 1980 will not have another February 29th birthday until 1984, the next time a Leap Year occurs. What does he do then to celebrate his birthday in 1981, 1982, and 1983?

A Leap-Year baby can choose his own birthday from either February 28 or March 1, two dates which DO occur every year.

Every person in the world shares his or her birthday with at least 10,000,000 other people. So the next time you celebrate your birthday and your friends sing “Happy Birthday to You” 10 million other people are hearing that same song sung to them all over the world. Some might be only 1 year old, while others might be 100!
