Just a short complication, I mean details. The additional day is actually a part of the 4 years. The Earth revolves around the sun approximately at 365.242199 days or 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 46 seconds. The fraction was rounded off to .25 or 1/4 day to make it much easier to account. Thus, after 4 years, it's added as a 1 whole day in February. I had not yet computed as to when will be the year when a day would no longer be added to cover the rounding off difference of .007801 (.25-.242199). Let me see (thinking)... (1/.007801...). Oh well, it's so small, it might not matter much. But when accumulated through the years, it will also become a 1 whole day (just a thought). I need to stop as not to mess things up and have you confused... ha ha ha.
