Birthday celebrations four years in the making

For many people, a birthday is a yearly occasion. But for others, like drill team director Nicole Nothe (pictured), the event only comes once every 4 years: on Leap day.

For many people, a birthday is a yearly occasion. But for others, like drill team director Nicole Nothe (pictured), the event only comes once every 4 years: on Leap day.

For certain people on campus, Thursday marks a very special day – one that only comes once every four years.

For people born on Leap Day, the real date of their birthday only occurs one time in four years, on Feb. 29.

Dance and drill team director Nicole Nothe believes that having a Leap Day birthday has its ups and downs, but makes for a memorable occasion.

“It’s exciting because it’s something new it’s not like everyone else’s birthday, but sometimes when I was younger, it was a little I was a little sad because I wasn’t able to celebrate on the day I was born,” Nothe said. “My favorite celebration was when I turned 40 so going back to my real 10th birthday, the drill team threw a strawberry shortcake-themed party and it was so much fun and something I’ll never forget.”

The next Leap day, and birthday for those born on Feb. 29 will fall on a Tuesday in 2028.
