For a day that comes once in 4 years, Google has doodled a rare two-in –one doodle that commemorates not only the leap day but also the 220th birth anniversary of the Italian composer Gìoachino Rossini. Since the leap years and leap days are usually associated with frogs, the leaping amphibians, the Google doodle on February 29, 2012 has a number of frogs ; all four of them .Of the four frogs in the scene, one is at the piano and the soprano is the one leaping.
February 29 being the one day in Irish Culture when a woman can propose to man and he’d be fined if he refused.
As the Leap Day based premise episode on 30 Rock goes- Nothing counts on Leap Day. Do make sure you do something on that one extra day.
Shout out to the leap year babies ! Happy Birthday Leaplings..
