Leaplings Weekend

February 28 – 29, 2020

Events & Holidays
Leaplings, individuals born on Leap Day, are a special group. There are only approximately 187,000 Leaplings living in the United States, and only once every four years do they have the opportunity to celebrate a birthday. With that in mind, The Greenbrier is offering a special opportunity to these Leaplings to celebrate their 2020 birthday at America’s Resort. 

Upon check-in on the weekend of February 29, 2020, these Leaplings, upon verifying their birthday, will receive a commemorative button to remember the weekend and to let everyone they see know they are a part of a rare fraternity. They will be invited to partake of a birthday cake at afternoon tea, and each Leapling will be eligible for a complimentary dinner at our Leap Year Dinner on February 29 to celebrate the occasion. 

Fun Leap Day Facts and Traditions
  • Opposite Day — According to Irish legend, Saint Brigid struck a deal with Saint Patrick to allow women to propose to men every four years on Leap Day.
  • Don’t Say No — The man was expected to pay a penalty, sometimes financial, if he refused the marriage proposal from a woman on Leap Day. In many European countries, a man who refused a woman’s proposal on Leap Day had to buy her 12 pairs of gloves, to hide the embarrassment of not having an engagement ring.
  • Leaplings — Leap Day babies are often called Leaplings. The chances of having a birthday on a Leap Day are about one in 1,461.
  • Multiple Leaplings — According to the New York Daily News, two women have given birth to three Leap Day babies.
  • Leapling Club — People born on February 29 are all invited to join The Honor Society of Leap Year Babies. More than 10,000 people worldwide are members.
  • Hail Caesar — Julius Caesar introduced the first leap year around 46 B.C.
