It’s Leap Day, so enjoy these joyful pictures of people (and penguins!) leaping

Every four years, the world adds an extra day to the calendar, which is basically like giving us all a little more time to live, to breathe, to be free! Today is that day and what better way to celebrate it than leaping over things for joy?

Seeing that leaping seems to be people on Instagram’s favorite thing to do ever, we rounded up some quality shots of people — and a few animals — jumping on this most (or least) exciting of holidays. Enjoy!
