I have an old school boyfriend who turns twelve this year. Yes, you guessed it, a leap year baby. During my high school years the term cougar didn’t exist and buying a birthday present once every four years seemed like a great idea.
2016 brings its own brand of craziness with it, kicking off with an extra day exactly one month from today. According to the clever folks we would lose almost six hours every year, if we didn’t add a day on February 29, nearly every 4 years! That’s almost a whole night’s sleep, three movies or a drive to a holiday destination. That just won’t do.
“Leap Days are needed to keep our calendar in alignment with the Earth’s revolutions around the Sun”, reports timeanddate.com. “It takes the Earth approximately 365.242199 days (a tropical year) to circle once around the Sun.”
If you had an extra day, how would you spend it? Kloofzicht Spa came up with some brilliant ideas to make the 29th of February a day to remember:
MEET: Stayover Sunday night 28th of February 2016 and your partner stays completely free.
TREAT: Book a 30min treatment and receive another of the same treatment for free.
EAT: Book a Spa Café Lunch at Kloofzicht Spa and get a Chefs choice dessert for free.
FREE FIZZBALL GIFT: And just to round off this leaping madness you will receive a free fizzball for every R50 spent on Matsimela Home Spa products.
So at the odd chance of my old flame reading this and responding publicly to this blog post: “My dear, let’s book you and your wifey in on Sunday night for a leap year birthday celebration at Kloofzicht Lodge & Spa. After all, it only happens once every four years!”
