Python Program to Check Leap Year or Not

Python Program to Check Leap or Not

In this tutorial, we are going to write a python datetime leap year program to check leap year.

A leap year is one which has 366 days in a year. A year is a leap year if it is divisible by 4 unless it is a century that is not divisible by 100. If the year is divisible by 4 then it is a leap year or if year is not divisible by 100 and at the same time divisible by 400 then also it is a leap year, otherwise it is not a leap year.

Leap Year

Steps on How to find/Check a year is Leap or not in python?

  • Year is leap if is divisible by 4 i.e year % 4 == 0.
  • Given year is leap if it divisible by 400 and not divisible by 100 i.e. year % 400 == 0 and year % 100!=0.
  • Otherwise given year is not leap year.

Program/Source Code

# Python program to check leap year or not 

def checkLeapYear(year): 
    if (year % 4 == 0 or (year % 100!= 0 and year % 400 ==0)):
        return True
        return False

year = int(input("Enter year: "))

    print(year, "is Leap Year") 
    print(year, "is not a Leap Year")


Enter year: 1992
1992 is a Leap Year

Enter year: 2020
2020 is Leap Year

Enter year: 4667
4667 is not a Leap Year


Accept the year as input from user. We have written a function checkLeapYear(). Using if-else to check given year is leap or not by considering above conditions. Return True if any one condition satisfies otherwise false.
