Dollar$ and cents of leap day
It's time for that other 4-year oddity -- the one without debates, robocalls or nasty campaign ads.
We're talking about leap year, when February has 29 days. It dates back to Julius Caesar, who wanted a calendar more closely aligned with the Earth's orbit around the sun. Since the trip actually takes about 365 1/4 days, an extra day was tacked on every 4 years.
See what leap day means for your money -- and Uncle Sam's.
