Leap Year Hop and Give@way!
To me, Leap Year is special.
It only comes around every four years, which means, in my family, it’s call for a celebration.
Then again, who needs cause to spend time and have fun with the kids, LOL.
It’s also a time of renewal, as springtime comes around. The days are longer, warmer, we can spend time outdoors for the two weeks before the hot, Arizona summer kicks in and forces us back inside, LOL.
To enter my drawing, which is a e-copy of Dragos 1: Burned, just answer the following question in the comments:
What does Leap Year mean to you?

Enjoy the pictures of what I think of when I think Leap Year.
Isn’t this one just me? :LOL
And, because this is me, after all 😉

Happy Leap Day!
What is leap day to me? Memories of Sadie Hawkin’s Dances in my school years (do they even do that anymore? I’m so old! LOL!)
And it is special…it takes FOUR YEARS to make a leap day, so it should definitely be celebrated.
Its a day of “extra”, for me. I had an “extra” piece of toast for breakfast because it’s an “extra” day! We’ll have “extra” food with dinner, and an “extra-“special dessert (maybe even cake!)
And i love Feb anyway coz it’s my birthday month..tho I was not born in a leap year…so having an “extra” special day in this month is always good. (and, um, i’m very anti-Valentines day, so it’s a nice, non-Hallmark day to celebrate!!)
I don’t thin about it at all until it pops up again. Just another day.
I can’t believe the smiles on those guys faces. I would be so embarrassed to wear those outfits with the bunny ears.
Happy Leap Day to you, too, and Happy Birthday 🙂 Those are great memories, and I love the idea of ‘extras’.
Thanks for stopping by. I love men who can wear silly things and joke about it 😉
Hi Amber! I have to say I’ve never really thought about what Leap Year means to me. I just came from R. Ann’s blog and the history was fascinating but, really, for me, it’s just another day. Sad, isn’t it? I do like that Nilla says it’s an extra day – that means I should be able to get ahead today, right? 😀 Thanks for the giveaway. firstname.lastname@example.org
Like the Leap Year Bunny Guys … or whatever they are. ^_^ I remember Leap Year as a child. We had a tradition at our house that if you wished for something when you woke and didn’t speak before you wished it — that it would come true. I have no idea if it worked or not. I think my mom just wanted one morning of quiet. LOL ^_^
Here’s to hoping we can all get ahead today 🙂
As a mom, I adore that idea! Thanks 🙂
I went to school with a girl born on Feb. 29 so I always think of her on this day.
I’ve always wondered what it was like to have your birthday only every 4 years. Did she enjoy it? Thanks for stopping by.
Leap year has no special meaning for me except that today is my cousin’s birthday. She is 14 and was born on Feb 29, 1956. LOL
She said that as soon as she was grown she would only celebrate her birthday on the 29th of February. That way she would always stay young
Love the bunny guys. It’s nice to see guys that can dress silly and have fun with it.

Happy Leap Day, Amber! The leap day gave me shivers. Never thought I was that superstitious. 😀 Love the bunnies! (Um, the ones at the top and the ones at the bottom.)
Congrats to Anne M for being drawn by random.org as the winner for the contest and thanks to all for stopping by and sharing with me 🙂
