2023 is not a Leap Year. But here’s how old Leap Year Babies would be if it was

News2023 is not a Leap Year. But here's how old Leap Year Babies would be if it was

  • On the “Leap Year” episode of “Modern Family,” Cam celebrates his 10th, er, 40th birthday
  • In the rom-com “Leap Year,” Amy Adams travels to Dublin to propose to her boyfriend on Feb. 29

We can calculate our age in dog years, so why not Leap Day years?

Unlike the canine formula — anyone can multiply their age by 7 to get the answer — the Leap Day math applies to people born on Feb. 29.

2023 is not a Leap Year, so there is no Feb. 29, 2023. (Just one more year, folks!) Those born on that day don’t always get to celebrate their actual birthday — since that date occurs only every four years. Someone born on Leap Day typically celebrates birthdays on Feb. 28 or March 1 and uses one of those dates for identification and important documents.

A common year has 365 days on the calendar while a leap year boasts that extra day. Their purpose keeps our calendar in sync with the seasons and solar year, or the length of time it takes the earth to complete its orbit around the sun, which is about 365¼ days, according to timespannddspante.com.

How old are you *technically* if you were born on Leap Day? If you were born on Leap Day 1920, you would be 100 years old, or 25 in Leap Day years.

The year must be evenly divisible by 4. If the year can be evenly divided by 100, it is not a leap year unless the year is also evenly divisible by 400, according to mspanthisfun.com. For example, 2000 and 2400 are leap years, but 1800, 1900, 2100, 2200, 2300 and 2500 are not.

We’ve done the math for you in our age guide below.
