Leap Year 2012 Google Doodle Frogs Share Stage With Gioachino Rossini

leap-year-2012-google-doodle

The frogs are back, and this time it’s musical. Today’s leap year Google Doodle on Google’s homepage marks two occasions: the extra day that shows up almost every four years on February 29, and the birthday of composer Gioachino Rossini.

A quartet of frogs appear before a simple, non-interactive black Google logo on a grassy stage drawn to pay tribute to Rossini’s comic opera “The Barber of Seville.” Rossini became a leap year baby when he was born on this date in 1792. Born into a musical family, the famous Italian composer wrote 39 operas, including “William Tell”.

Leap days, which keep our calendars in line with the sun, generally happen every four years (i.e., for years that end in ’04, ’08, ’12 … ’92, ’96); however, years ending in ’00 only have a leap day every 400 years. That’s why 2000 had a leap day, but 1900 didn’t. Barring a mass extinction and assuming people are still using the Gregorian calendar, the next leap day in a ’00 year will be in 2400.

Google has added “leap” frogs to its logo, in much simpler form, twice before: in 2004 and 2008.
