Monday, February 22 starts a new week, and what better way to start it than with National Margarita Day! Everyday is a holiday, and while we can’t celebrate all of them, here at iHoliday.org we like to at least try to acknowledge them. The final week of February has several holidays that we enjoy, and it also will feature one holiday that we can only celebrate once every four years – Leap Year!
The week starts with National Margarita Day on February 22 and if you love margaritas it is your day to party down! Okay, it is a Monday, and you probably have to work, so the party time will most likely be limited. However, if you do want to grab one margarita with dinner, “On the Border” restaurant will be selling their in-house margaritas for $2.00 all day Monday.
Other “daily holiday’s” this week include National Tortilla Chip Day, National Bacon Day and National Chili Day – and that is just a few. Of course let’s not forget “Leap Year Day” on February 29th. So why in the world do we have a “leap year?” Well, according to science researchers the answer to that question is this:
Leap year occurs every four years to help synchronize the calendar year with the solar year, or the length of time it takes the earth to complete its orbit about the sun, which is about 365¼ days.
Who knew that science would make us have to work an extra day?
