Sara’s Birthday

Sara was born in Boston on February 29, 2008 at 11:00 am. Her parents were quite upset that their calendar-challenged daughter would only be able to celebrate her birthday once in four years. Luckily, science can help Sara’s parents. How? Sara can celebrate her birthday every year at the moment when the Earth passes the same point on its orbit around the Sun as when Sara was born.

Assuming that Sara lives her entire life in Boston and that the daylight savings time is not moved earlier into February, your task is to calculate the schedule of Sara’s birthday celebrations for 100 years starting from her birth. To simplify your homework, you can approximate one year as 365 days and 6 hours.
