Why Do We Have Leap Year?

Leap years are needed to keep our modern day Gregorian calendar in alignment with the Earth’s revolutions around the sun.

It takes the Earth approximately 365.242189 days – or 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 45 seconds – to circle once around the Sun.

So in 4 years we get 1460.99 which is one day extra in four years.

The next leap year will be on 2020.
