Leap Year Day
An extra day that is added evey four years, at the end of February, to bring the calendar into alignment with the Earth’s orbit around the Sun.

The Leap Year runs from March 01, 2008 – February 28 2009.
And has traditionally been the time when a woman can propose marriage to a man. (Of course that as before today’s enlightened times. Or at least we’ll be more enlightened when this administration leaves the planet.)

National Tooth Fairy Day
I know its been a while, but can you remember back to the first time your teeth fell out? Ahhh, the joy. The innocence. That exciting jingle of change, those sweet crisp bills, and the blind faith that your piggy bank would just keep growing each time you left one of those decrepit enamels your teeth under your pillow. What bliss!

Well today lets give a shout out to our favorite fairy (or at least until Gay Pride weekend). For no one does the dental nightshift quite like that fairy we call Tooth.
