Apparently Leap Year Day was Superman's birthday. According to The Supermanhomepage.com:

February 29, 2004: Happy Birthday Superman!
Traditionally February 29th has been celebrated as Superman's birthday.
In Action Comics #655 (July 1990) a Smallville newspaper clipping shows Jonathan and Martha Kent had a child "on or about February 28th".

DC Comics did this as a comical way of giving a reason for Superman's slow aging in the comic books. Afterall, he only has a birthday every four years. :)

Happy Birthday, Superman!!!

I promise to pay more attention as Miracle Monday approaches.
