Happy Leap Day: Any Other Year It’d Be March Already!

Hope you are wearing your blue and yellow for your chance to do the things you normally wouldn’t, because nothing that happens on Leap Day counts. Before 2012, this day would simply be a scientific necessity or loophole clause to light opera pirate contracts; however, everything changed with 30 Rock’s brilliant sixth season episode “Leap Day,” and a quadrennial holiday was borne, with an impressively deep set of traditions:

  • Wear blue and yellow or face the consequences
  • Leap Day William rises from the Mariana Trench to give candy to crying children
  • A day to do what you normally wouldn’t, because “real life is for March.”
  • The Jim Carrey-Andie McDowell classic (and totally existent) Leap Dave Williams plays on marathon on cable
