Is it true that February 2020 is a special February? First of all it is a leap year. Secondly it has four Sundays to Friday's and 5 Saturday?

Update:

It also comes after 823 years so it definitely won't begin our life time. Am I right or wrong?

    It's a man made cycle that repeats. 

    We decided to have leap years.  We decided to have weeks of 7 days.  We decided weekend days were days off.

    We decided the lengths of the hours, minutes, and seconds, without regard to the actual workings of the universe.  Had we made the second ever so slightly longer, we wouldn't need to correct with a leap year every four years.

    All that's going to  cycle around and around.

    It's not special.

    It's artificial and meaningless.

    Why is this in here? It has nothing to do with horses or their care. Please post it in the appropriate place.

    There is a leap year every 4 years

    and every 'leap year February' has 5 of 'one day of the week' in it.

    So .. 7 days a week .. leap year every 4 years.

    5 Saturdays happens more than once every 823 years.

    So .. no, not really.
