I remember once hearing someone complain that the extra day came in winter when it should have been in the spring or summer when the weather is nicer.

wolfishMusings got his facts correct if he is referring to the Southern Hemisphere but incorrect if he is referring to the Northern Hemisphere; The Nochrim tagged on an extra day to August making August 31 days eventhough July was already 31 days, to prolong the summer, at expense of curtaling February in winter to only 28 days so as to curtail the winter, totally out of sync with all the other secular months.February 29, 2012 12:13 am at 12:13 am #856665PBTMember
This year that happens to coincide with 6 Adar. That evening, the 7th of Adar, the Denver kehillah holds a dinner l’ilui nishmas Moshe Rabbeinu. We hear divrei Torah and pledge masechtos to learn in time for the next year. I love it and have almost never missed it. The only year I did was because it was my first date with the woman who’s now my wife.February 29, 2012 1:12 am at 1:12 am #856666WolfishMusingsParticipant

Oh, for Heaven’s sake, there are no facts here. I was commenting on the person’s stupidity.
The weather of that day will be the same whether you call it February 29 or March 1. You can pick any day of the year and call it the “extra” day.

How do salaried people work for free? Their paycheck is based on the number of days/week, not the month.
