Leap Day happens every four years, and aside from those born on Feb. 29, most people see the upcoming day as nothing noteworthy.

One commenter on the poll stated: “It’s Thursday. A regular work day. No big deal.”

According to the latest Big Island Now poll asking: How do you plan to spend Leap Day, 81 people out of 184 voted it’s a workday and an extra day of pay.

Thirty-seven people voted they’d be getting outside to enjoy nature.
