Year (n.): The time of the apparent revolution of the sun trough the ecliptic; the period occupied by the earth in making its revolution around the sun, called the astronomical year; also, a period more or less nearly agreeing with this, adopted by various nations as a measure of time, and called the civil year; as, the common lunar year of 354 days, still in use among the Mohammedans; the year of 360 days, etc. In common usage, the year consists of 365 days, and every fourth year (called bissextile, or leap year) of 366 days, a day being added to February on that year, on account of the excess above 365 days (see Bissextile).

Bissextile (n.): Leap year; every fourth year, in which a day is added to the month of February on account of the excess of the tropical year (365 d. 5 h. 48 m. 46 s.) above 365 days.

A considerable number of well wishes from his school chums ended with the letters H A G S. At first glance (and primarily due to poor penmanship), I thought it read, HUGS. It was only upon close examination and the concern on my part that some of these year end messages were from his male friends, that I realized that the letters were in fact, H A G S. Could this possibly mean that all these sentiments were from less than attractive young ladies? Confused, I resorted to a most heinous act...I asked my son what it meant. After enduring the " I can't believe your asking me this, rolling the eyeballs to the heavens" pre-teen stare, he replied simply, "H ave A G reat S ummer." (ed: see what I mean?)
