  • Julius Caesar introduced the first calendar leap year in 46 B.C, but made a few mistakes in the calculations?
  • Who came to the rescue? It was about 1500 years later, Pope Gregory XIII tweaked the calculations in his Gregorian calendar, but it had its flaws too - it only had 365 days.
  • Why was that a problem?Since it takes the earth 365 days, five hours, 48 minutes, and 45 seconds to revolve once around the sun, we would have lost 6 hours a year! So, modern mankind added a day every four years to make sure we don’t!
