Leap Day is a minor event in Animal Crossing: City Folk and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. It occurs on February 29, a date only accessible during years divisible by four.

A notice about the event is posted on the bulletin board, and villagers may also talk about the event. In New Leaf, Isabelle will announce that it is a leap day when the player first loads the game that day.

If a player's birthday is set as February 29, it will be celebrated on that day during leap years and on the 28th every other year. Villagers will remark on the player's birthday taking place on a leap day during leap years. Leap Day is also Luna's birthday.
