 Calendars - Ancient, Caesar's, Gregorian, and Alternate Calendars
Julius Caesar changed the ancient calendars; decreeing that a year has 365 days, and that every fourth year (starting in 45 B.C.) is a leap year with an extra day.
Caesar's calendar resulted in three leap years too many every 385 years, so Pope Gregory XIII (with help from an astronomer) introduced a new calendar in 1,582 A.D. that called for a leap day in every year that is exactly divisible by four.
To further make things work out correctly, the Pope decreed an exception to this rule: leap years ending in 00 (including 2000) must be evenly divisible by 400 to qualify for the extra day.

 Here's scoop on leap year peculiarities of the past - The Boston Globe

In case you've forgotten why there are leap years in the first place, here's a quick reminder: About every four years, an extra day is added to the calendar to let it keep pace with what's actually happening with the seasons.
The only discernible pattern is that each of those years was one in which a presidential election was held, as will be the case this year and in 2032, 2060, and 2088.
