But the year is not exactly equal to 365%, days either. It is actually about 11 minutes shorter. Adding an extra day in leap year makes the average calendar a few minutes too long. So, the day is not added in the century years, except those that can be divided by 400. Thus A.D. 2000 will be a 'leap year, but 2100 will not, nor was 1900. A person born on February 29 can choose his own birthday -- either February 28 or March 1.
