Why do leap years happen?

According to our calendar, there are 365 days in a year because this is the time it takes for the earth to revolve around the sun, but this period is not full 365 days but a little more.

According to astronomers, the earth takes 365.242190 days to complete one orbit around the sun.

This makes 365 days, five hours, 48 ​​minutes and 56 seconds. This is called sidereal air.

A sidereal year is slightly longer than a normal year, so extra hours, minutes and seconds are subtracted from it. However, these additional hours are adjusted by adding one day in the fourth year after every three years.
