The Ænigma Project – Mondays 8 PM EST
The Ænigma Project is a discussion group focused on the realm of the supernatural, paranormal and mysterious events that sometimes take place in our lives. Through multiple view points and experiences, we seek to enlighten our listeners and elucidate that which has become hidden beneath the many layers of misunderstanding and fear.
Join Paul Cagle and his co-hosts Sushi and Springwolf as we share our research, knowledge, insight and humor of the spiritual and paranormal. Be part of the Ænigmite Crew and play “Truth or Tale”, see if you can tell the stories that are real, from those that are made up. And find out what the latest strange or paranormal is being talked about for the week as we discuss the “News of the Day”.
Tune in tonight for our LIVE broadcast.

February 29: Leap Year Superstitions, Traditions and More
We think of Leap Year as coming around every four years. But it doesn’t, really. Leap years are needed to keep our modern day Gregorian calendar in alignment with the Earth’s revolutions around the sun. It takes the Earth approximately 365.242189 days – or 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 45 seconds – to circle once around the Sun. This is called a tropical year, and is measured from the March equinox.
In the Gregorian calendar three criteria must be taken into account to identify leap years:
- The year can be evenly divided by 4;
- If the year can be evenly divided by 100, it is NOT a leap year, unless;
- The year is also evenly divisible by 400. Then it is a leap year.
This means that in the Gregorian calendar, the years 2000 and 2400 are leap years, while 1800, 1900, 2100, 2200, 2300 and 2500 were and are NOT leap years.
All this mathematical science doesn’t stop humans from associating mystery and mysticism to each Leap Year that does occur. Around the world there are many superstitions and traditions put into practice. For instance in Denmark, tradition says any man who refuses a woman’s proposal on February 29 has to buy her 12 pairs of gloves. Yes, 12. Seems slightly excessive doesn’t it?
Join us tonight and find out the reasoning behind that tradition and many more recognized around the world. Along with some of the worlds superstitions and a few of our own favorite memories and stories of February 29th!
