When is the next Leap Year?

The next, after 2024, will be 2028. Leap Day occurs every four years, minus century years that aren’t exactly divisible by 400. That sounds kinda extra, but there's a reason for the math. The purpose of Leap Day is to keep the calendar synchronized with the astronomical year, which is approximately 365.25 days, while our calendar year is 365 days. Adding this extra day helps make sure seasons don’t shift.
