Feb. 29 only happens every four years. How will you spend it?

2024 is a Leap Year, meaning it has one extra day: Thursday, February 29.

If you are — or happen to know — one of the approximately 5 million "leaplings" around the world who were born on Feb. 29, you'll get to celebrate on the actual day for the first time in four years. If not, you're still getting a relatively rare bonus day.

We want to know how you'll be spending it. Please answer one or more of the following questions in the form below. Your answers could be featured in a radio or digital story from NPR's Morning Edition.

In your responses, please include your first and last name, age, location and email address. You may be contacted by an NPR reporter for a follow-up interview.

We will be accepting responses until Feb. 19 at 12 p.m. ET.

Your submission will be governed by our general Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. As the Privacy Policy says, we want you to be aware that there may be circumstances in which the exemptions provided under law for journalistic activities or freedom of expression may override privacy rights you might otherwise have.
