Would be better for our collective psyche if every 4 years they just added a July 32 instead of Feb 29— Adam Himmelsbach (@AdamHimmelsbach) February 28, 2016
February is probably the worst month of the year. It's the dead of winter, nothing much happens, there aren't any major holidays, etc. Why would anyone ever get excited about an extra day in February?
On the other hand, if you put Leap Day in the middle of summer, people would be pumped (I guess there may be somewhere else in the world where February is the middle of summer, but whatever, I doubt I have many readers there). July 32 might be a little too weird for us to handle, but how about a June 31 or a September 31?
