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 wonder if we'll have liturgy that day. Extra day of blessings!   :)
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

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