What Else Besides Leap Year Happens Every Four Years?

Considering Leap Year gives us an EXTRA 24 HOURS OF LIFE every four years, you think people would value it a little more than they do other quadrennial events. But such is not the case. There are a handful events competing for the title of "Best Thing That Happens Only Every Four Years," and I would say that Leap Year isn't even a competitor. So below, I created a list of things that happen every four years. The first section is a list of things I can name offhand, then the later section includes items I wasn't able to name offhand and had to look up.

Virtually all of them get more love than lowly Leap Year. Shame on you, society.

Wow. Okay. There aren't a lot of universally acknowledged quadrennial events, but that just means that Leap Year should get even more attention. Also, I got 80% of them. Not bad!
