Julia Hughes - writing thrilling adventures - time after time after time.
Just because it’s leap year. Logically, I know it isn’t a magical gift from the universe. It isn’t an extra day, just a way of realigning something man made: measuring time; to something natural: time. It actually takes planet Earth 365 days and five hours and a few odd minutes to orbit the sun entire. And so once every four years, a makeshift unit of time has to be inserted. Else we’d end up celebrating Christmas in June - just because we’d call the summer month of June December wouldn’t make the days any less longer, or any less warmer, or any less summery. We’d just be calling it the middle of winter.
I’ve no idea why this extra day makes a leap year, or why it’s customary for women to propose to men, but I do know it always gives me a little fillip of pleasure to think that the silly human race has given itself the present of an extra day. Oh the possibilities - what will you do with yours? I know what I’m going to do. I’m going to give everyone A Raucous Time.
