It’s a leap year which means tomorrow we get an extra day to the year!
An ordinary year has 365 days per year but every four years we get a bonus day.
A complete orbit of the earth around the sun takes 365.2422 days to complete so leap seconds (and years) are added to keep our clocks (and calendars) in sync with the Earth.
Legend has it that on leap day women should ask men to marry them. I’d say most women in modern times are more excited about all the leap day sales/promotions that will be going on tomorrow.
