I just got to thinking-----later this month, those folks whose birthday falls on February 29 will get to observe their birthdays!   Well, they ought to get FOUR birthday cakes on that day, don't you agree?  The only question is, do the candles get shifted from Cake NO. 1 to Cake NO. 2 and so forth, as the birthday person blows out them out and makes a wish, or does each cake get a set of candles? . . . .

Four cakes deserve four times the candles, I think!  Why not?
