Full Answer

The Julian calendar assumes a leap day every four years, meaning that each year on a Julian calendar is 365.25 days. The common Gregorian calendar assumes a leap day every four years with the exception of century years, which creates a disparity between the two. The Julian calendar is predominately used by astrologists and was the primary calendar used worldwide before the Gregorian calendar came to prominence in 1582.
