Are there any saints associated with February 29th? Or would the saints from the day before, or the day after be applied to the leap year day?

I believe in One God, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.

I wonder if we'll have liturgy that day. Extra day of blessings!   :)

St. John (and I suppose the other one too) are moved to the February 28 on a non-leap year.
