Suson to celebrate birthday on Leap Year

Aidan Norton, Student Life Reporter

Eric Suson is in sixth grade, but he’s only turning 3 years old this year.

Suson’s birthday is Saturday, Feb. 29.

Every four years, a strange phenomenon occurs. And it just happens to land in the year 2020. This year, instead of having 365 days, there will be 366 days with Feb. 29 being designated as Leap Year.

Suson said he traditionally celebrates his birthday on Feb. 28. But this year, he gets to celebrate on his actual birthday.

He said he doesn’t plan to do anything special this year for his birthday, although it does land on a Leap Year. But either way, he’s excited to celebrate.
