The Houston Herald is interested in finding out about local citizens born on February 29.

An article about the date and people born on it (who are known as “leaplings”) will be published March 1.

For use in the article, we would like photos of people with the unusual birthday, and information about them such as name, age, how birthdays are handled during leap years and other years, what the person thinks of having the rare birthday, and any other interesting anecdotal tidbits. Quotes are welcomed.

Feel free to email pictures and information to Doug Davison any time between now and Monday night, or call him Monday afternoon before 5 p.m.
