Leap Day

Have you looked at your calendar today? It is 29 February - a date that only comes around every four years in a leap year.
leap year is a year that contains one extra day. This extra day is intended to keep the calendar year synchronized with the astronomical year and is called a leap day. In the Gregorian calendar, that extra day is today - 29 February, 2012. Happy Leap Day! My question for you is: what do you call a person who was born on a leap day?

a) a leaper
b) a leapling
c) a leapster
d) a leapite
