Questions about the TZOLKIN
Calendar

I am doing research on which calendar the day of leap
year originated. Does the Tzolkin Calendar have a leap year?
If so, is there an actual symbol that the used to mark this?
Any information would be appreciated. I hope to hear from you.

The Gregorian calendar is the latest development of calendars to have a leap year. The Mayan calendar and Tzolkin do not have a leap year as they have nothing to do with the Gregorian calendar or the timing of our rotation around our sun. They keep track of each day of Creation and the energy associated with that day. Jose Arguelles made a big mistake with his attempt at describing the Mayan calendar when he tied it to the gregorian calendar and the vague orbit of the moon of 28 days. That orbit is actually 29.5 days.
