Leap Year 2016: why is there a leap day?

Today google celebrate Leap year 2016 with interesting rabbit doodle.
The 29th of February only happens every four years. This is to keep our calendar in sync with the rotation of the Earth around the sun. Without Leap Day, we'd be out of sync by about six hours per year.
