For a short month, February has plenty of special days: Groundhog Day, Fat Tuesday, Valentine’s Day, Presidents Day and — every four years — Leap Day. Unlike the others, however, Feb. 29 passes without the fanfare, the blowout sales and the post office closures. But Leap Day has its own intriguing traditions, interesting history and famous birthdays, including one superhero.
WHY LEAP DAY?
While some ancient societies had accounted for a leap day, Julius Caesar and the astronomer Sosigenes developed the Julian calendar in 46 BC to replace the Roman Republican calendar. It had 12 months and 365 days and adjusted for the longer solar year with a leap day every four years. But even with an extra day, it was still 11 minutes short, and by the 14th century it was 10 days behind the solar year. Enter Pope Gregory XII, who in 1582 created the Gregorian calendar that we use today. With it, a leap year comes every four years unless the year is evenly divisible by 100 and not 400, such as in the year 1900.
The simplest explanation for leap day is that there are 365 days in our calendar and the time it takes the Earth to orbit the sun is roughly 365.2421 days. This adds up over time, so an extra day is added every four years to make up the difference and keep our calendar consistent with the astronomical year. Unfortunately, even the Pope didn’t have his calculations perfect and the calendar will need to be updated again in about 10,000 years to get us back in sync.
LEAP FACTS AND TRADITIONS
People born on Feb. 29 are called Leapers, and there is a special website dedicated to them at .leapyeardaym. On years without a Feb. 29, Leapers celebrate their birthdays on Feb. 28 or March 1. They can also fudge their age, as they have fewer birthdays than years lived (so be sure to always ask how old a Leaper is, not how many birthdays they’ve had!).
Leap Day always occurs during an election year, which may explain why people sometimes wish some politicians would take a big leap.
In Ireland and Britain, traditionally a woman may propose marriage only in leap years. The 2010 romantic comedy “Leap Year” starring Amy Adams focuses on this custom.
In Finland, if a man refuses a woman’s proposal on Leap Day, he is supposed to buy her the fabric to make a skirt.
In Greece, it’s considered unlucky to get married during a leap year.
In France, the satirical newspaper, La Bougie du Sapeur, has been published only on Feb. 29 since 1980.
In 1988, Leapers Mary Ann Brown and Birdie Lewis pushed the Anthony, Texas Chamber of Commerce for a leap year festival and birthday club. The governors of New Mexico and Texas soon declared the town “Leap Year Capital of the World” and the event continues to grow. This year’s festivities start Feb. 26 in El Paso with a welcome mixer and tours of the local art and history museums and other points of interest and conclude with a parade, party and birthday dinner Feb. 29.

While there is a 0.27 percent opportunity for more economic activity with an extra day in February, it is still a shorter month than the rest so there is little if any difference in the market. Also, Leap Day doesn’t get the retail love that Thanksgiving, Presidents Day and other holidays do, so there isn’t any push to drive sales. The only winner here seems to be employers who reap a free day from their workers on fixed salaries.

Playwright Joshua Harmon’s flawed exercise in contemporary tribal warfare pits two young and privileged Jewish-American cousins — Daphna (Sigi Gradwohl) and Liam (Jordan Wall) — against each other, utilizing an arsenal of self-serving and often delusional epithets that results in an underwhelming dramatic payoff for the 90 minutes spent in their company. The fault is in the writing, not in the relentlessly committed in-your-face portrayals by Gradwohl and Wall, as well as the supportive if underdeveloped outings of Liam’s brother Jonah (Tyler Alverson) and his not-too-bright non-Jewish girlfriend Melody (Hilary Curwen). Sabrina Lloyd’s direction properly underscores the DaphnaLiam vitriolic pas de deux, but fails to establish a cohesive dramatic through-line to bolster Harmon’s inconsistent plot.
Harmon leads off with the implausible scenario that Liam and Jonah have to share their wealthy parents’ “spare” upscale Manhattan studio flat with their cousin Daphna on the occasion of their grandfather’s funeral. (I guess no one could afford a hotel room.) The addition of Melody, Liam’s ladylove, makes for even tighter quarters and helps facilitate the open warfare that ensues. Designer Chad Phillips’ awkwardly wrought apartment setting, dominated by the full-size fold-down bed placed in the middle of the action, often forces Liam and Daphna to wail at each other from across the room, while Jonah and Melody make themselves as invisible as possible in whatever space is available.
Gradwohl’s Daphna, a Vassar senior whose birth name is actually Diana, is an amazing study in self-invention, conducting herself as an “über-Jew” who rails against the inadequacies of others. Despite Liam’s sneering assertion that his cousin is a phony —“wishing she were this, like, barbed-wire-hopping, Uzi-toting Israeli warlock superhero” — Daphna’s jaundiced assessments of society’s inadequacies are well thought out and imbued with devastating wit, made even more cogent by Gradwohl’s powerhouse, rapid-fire delivery. Her Daphna actually beams when she hones in on any weaknesses or insecurities she observes in others.
Wall’s Liam is a worthy combatant but is often done in by his uncontrollable anger towards his cousin. His ire at Daphna’s penchant for combing her overflowing hair any place she wants actually reduces the discourse of this supposedly intellectually transcendent doctoral candidate to infantile babble. Where Wall’s portrayal does rise to the occasion is when Daphna challenges Liam for possession of their grandfather’s treasured ornament, a golden Chai (chai means “living”) medallion that had survived the Holocaust with the old man. The focused rage of this normally non-religious young Jew rises to formidable biblical ferocity.
Jonah and Melody are minor but welcome players in this foursome. Alverson invests Jonah with an aura of introspective discomfort as he attempts to sidestep the uncompromising agendas hurled at him from his demanding brother and needy cousin. Although Alverson manages to establish Jonah as a tangibly sympathetic character, the playwright has not provided him with enough substance to make viable Jonah’s all-important play-closing revelation.
Curwen is appealing as the intellectually uncomplicated Melody who tries to make the best of an uncomfortable situation. Her even-keeled temperament flows right over the reams of personal insults thrown her way by Daphna. It is actually a relief to witness Melody’s façade finally crumble after Daphna goes one step too far.
Bad Jews is a problematic but colorful work, populated with entertaining characters who are portrayed by a competent cast not always served well by the playwright or Lloyd’s direction. One particular low point occurs when it is revealed that Melody had been an opera major but chose, after college, to work for a non-profit as an administrator. When Daphna asks her to sing, the ensuing two full choruses of “Summertime” are so mind-numbingly awful that it calls into question the playwright’s knowledge of collegiate-level musical education and the director’s decision to allow anything this grotesque-sounding to go on for so long. This is when Daphna’s usually quickly dissenting voice was sorely needed.
