LEAP YEARS 

Normally our calendar years are made up of 365 days, but every four years we add a day to make what is known as a ‘leap year’.

Here’s why:

The Gregorian calendar, the most widely used across the globe, measures a year to be 365 days following the Earth’s orbit around the Sun.

However, the Earth’s orbit takes 365.24 days to complete its solar orbit and an extra day every four years is added to keep calendar seasons synchronized with solar seasons.

If we didn’t do this the seasons would shift around the calendar, and in 750 years’ time June would find itself in the middle of winter .

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
