Today is Birthday Number “Nifty Fifty”.
Curious trivia – Today is a Saturday, and I was born on a Saturday.
That works out me (along with about half of you reading this) because I was born in the 2 years before a leap year, so I’ve seen 13 of them. The other half of you will have only seen 12 leap years in 50 years, but – and here’s the curious trivia part – Because of the Gregorian Calendar Reform (skip leap years in years divisible by 100 but not by 400), not every 100 years is a leap year – only 1 in 4 is. Y2K happened to be a leap year divisible by both, so we’re special.
Nobody born after 3/1/2050 will have their 50th birthday fall on the same day of the week as their birth day, until 3/1/2102.
