In this constantly busy world where one of the most complained about things remain "lacking time", 2020 is here to bless us all with a leap day! This happens only once every 4 years, which means this leap day signifies an extra day we all get to do whatever we think we don't have enough time for, or simply celebrate this one extra day in our own way.
Many individuals have taken advantage of these extra 24 hours to make history. For instance, Gordie Howe, the late National Hockey League player became the first person to score 800 goals in his career, back in 1980. Pierre Trudeau, the former Prime Minister of Canada announced his retirement in 1984 on this day.
In this 21st century, where everything is internet-driven, this is how netizens are celebrating this year's leap day:
Many netizens took to Twitter to share their words of wisdom and highly motivational posts for this day.
