Leaping Year

A Leap Year is when the calendar year is extended to have 366 days - adding February 29th.
I don’t really get it but the day is added to put the calendar year in line with the length of the Earth's orbit around the Sun. 
I made this simple lillypad cookie and green (lime) Tootsie Roll frog to mark the 2012 leap year.
The day is added once every four years but I hope I have another occasion to make these cookies before 2016.
