Why Is There a Leap Year?

 In Vision

Leap year was rumored to have happened due to the jealousy of Roman Emperors.  Emperor Augustus took 2 days from the shortest month, February, to make his calendar month, August, equal to July, the month of Julius Caesar.

The actual reason is that earth takes 365.24 days to complete its solar orbit and an extra day every four years is added to the shortest month to keep calendar seasons synchronized with solar seasons.
