This post has been corrected. See the note at the bottom for details. Leap year is serving up its bonus day today, Feb. 29, 2012.  Known as leap day, Feb. 29 is an added day that seems to magically show up on the calendar every four years.

The setting could have been lifted from one of his movies: a bright summer day amid beautiful houses and expansive lawns on Chicago's North Shore. But in place of boisterous laughter and iconoclastic spirit was a mood quiet and somber as family, friends and colleagues such as Matthew Broderick, Ben Stein and Vince Vaughn gathered in a Lake Forest funeral home Tuesday to remember filmmaker John Hughes. Hughes, who directed such enduring '80s teen comedies as "The Breakfast Club" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and oversaw the 1990 box-office smash "Home Alone" while living on the North Shore, died Thursday of a heart attack in Manhattan at 59. He was remembered at an invitation-only service at Wenban Funeral Home, where security personnel checked off mourners' names at the door.
