Unless you're in the 0.07% of people this applies to, you've maybe never thought about it . . .
Next year is a Leap Year, but 2023 isn't. So when do people born on February 29th celebrate? Today, tomorrow . . . or maybe BOTH?
Someone on Reddit asked Leap Day babies . . . or "Leaplings" . . . to weigh in. And the general consensus seems to be there isn't one.
Some like to celebrate today to keep it in February . . . some prefer tomorrow, because a day early just feels wrong . . . and a few die-hard Leaplings only celebrate once every four years.
A few people also said their parents celebrated their birthday on the 28th AND March 1st, which is nice. If you don't get a real birthday, two fake ones seems like an okay trade-off.
Even Facebook has had trouble with this, by the way. On the 28th, they used to tell friends your birthday was "tomorrow" . . . but then didn't send out any alert on March 1st.
From a legal standpoint though, tomorrow is the day that matters. When a Leap Day baby turns 21, they can't technically get into a bar until 12:00 A.M. on March 1st.
