Just a side note if you were born on February 29, you are called a “leapling”. Sometimes they are called a “leap-year baby”. Usually, on a non-leap year, they will celebrate their birthday either the day before (February 28) or the day after (March 1). Some legality of the day comes in different countries, like when you turn 18 or 21, usually it is March 1, not February 28, on years that are not a Leap Year.

Another strange thing was women could only propose on Leap Day. If the man refused he had to buy her like 12 pairs of gloves or something crazy like that. I am sure there are many other crazing things about this day too. I guess that is why in Ireland and the United Kingdom is it known as Bachelor’s Day.

So have you used this extra day of the year for God and tell others about Jesus?

    The End of an Era: Redbox Shuts Down All Kiosks — In a move that marks the end of an era, Redbox, the iconic DVD rental service, is shutting down all of its kiosks. This decision comes as part of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation by its parent company, Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment¹². For over two decades, Redbox has been a familiar sight at grocery stores, convenience stores, and Walmarts across the United States, offering a convenient way to rent movies and games. However, the rise of digital streaming services has significantly impacted the demand for physical media, leading to this unfortunate outcome. #Redbox
