Happy Leap Day! 

Did you know a person born on February 29 is called a "leapling" or a "leap-year baby?"

Leap Day is a date that occurs in most years that are divisible by four. The last leap-year was in 2012. In non-leap years, leaplings usually celebrate their birthdays on either February 28 or March 1.

Are you a leap-year baby? We want to hear how you're celebrating your special day! Share your stories and photos on Facebook. 

We would like to wish leap-year baby Willie Sue Smith a very happy birthday. The Decatur woman, who was born in Mansfield, is celebrating her 105th birthday with a party at Manor Care Nursing Home. 

From all of us at FOX 5, happy birthday to all of the Leap Day babies!
