If each day is only 23h56m4s, over the course of 4 years, we accumulate 95.7 hours of unaccounted time when approximating each day to 24 hours. We give ourselves one extra day in February, which accounts for only 24 hours of that extra time, but where does that extra 71.7 hours go?


This also means that our calendar should shift over 3 days every 4 years, changing the “location” of the seasons in our man made calendar
