    Actually, the final adjustment to the Leap Year cceonpt by the Gregorians, was to address the 11 extra minutes per year that the one extra day every four years solution failed to account for. The Pope called for a solution, and the answer was if the last year in the century is divisble by 400, then it gets a Leap Day. None of this was explained to me in my childhood as I wailed against the inequities of not having a real day for 3 out of 4 of my birthday celebrations. Yes, I am one of the 4 million leapers
