Imagine what it must be like for people born on February 29.

They only get to celebrate their "real" birthday once every four years. Meaning, a birthday party for a person born on Leap Day is like an Olympics or Presidential Election.

Those events don't happen that often either, that's why Olive Garden cooked up something special if you're one of the 205,000 folks actually born on Leap Day.

Olive Garden is gifting "Leaplings", with four free desserts to celebrate their birthday. Get it? One Dolicini for this year and three extra for the birthdays missed. Clever.

What about the rest of the world not born on Leap Day? For everyone else, Olive Garden is selling $2.99 take-home entrees on February 29 that include fettuccine alfredo, five cheese ziti al forno, and spaghetti.
