We’re one day into 2016 and have 365 to go… though an Internet meme has people believing we only have 364 more days this year. Yes, sometimes the Internet gets things wrong (!), and this case is no different. ‘Cause 2016 is a Leap Year, so February will have 29 days instead of 28.
What’s even the point of a Leap Year? The length of a solar year is a bit less than 365 ¼ days. It happens every four years in order to sync up the calendar year with the solar year (how long it takes the Earth to finish its orbit around the sun; hence, the 365 ¼ days).
According to the New York Daily News, a “Page 1 of 365” meme went viral on New Year’s Day. And why not, since it’s the ideal time for all of us to make a fresh start—whether it’s getting a new job, finding an S.O., or reevaluating our life goals, in general.
Here was the got-it-so-wrong meme.
However, some people know the truth.
And others are taking comedic approaches to the issue.
Those who have caught on are correcting the “365” meme.
I guess, when all is said and meme’d, the important thing is, we should make every day count, right?
