Leap or intercalary or bissextile year only comes around once every 4 years.  It happens to balance out the fact that there are about 365.25 days in a year.  That extra day added each year takes care of that .25 extra.  This keeps the calendar year in sync with the astronomical year.

A true year (in the Gregorian calendar) is thought to be exactly 365.2425 which adds up to:  365 days, 5 hours, 49 minutes, and 12 seconds long.  

The Gregorian calendar was designed to keep the vernal equinoxon or close to March 21, so that the date of Easter (celebrated on the Sunday after the 14th day of the Moon—i.e. a full moon—that falls on or after March 21) remains correct with respect to the vernal equinox.[4] The vernal equinox year is about 365.242374 days long (and increasing). – wikipedia.org
