A year is not 365 days, but 365.25 days. This means that every four years another day has been created, so to keep the calendar in line with the sun then it must be altered.

Does the calendar year change every seven years?

What is a difference between Gregorian and Julian calendar?

The short answer to the difference between the Julian and Gregorian calendars is three days per 400 years. In every 400-year period the Julian calendar has 100 leap years while the Gregorian calendar has 97. The years that are leap years in the Julian calendar but not in the Gregorian calendar are years evenly divisible by 100 but not evenly divisible by 400. So 1600 was a leap year, 1700, 1800 & 1900 were not leap years, 2000 was a leap year, 2100, 2200 & 2300 are not leap years, and 2400 is a leap year.The time it takes Earth to go from a solstice or equinox around the sun and back to the same solstice or equinox is about 365.24219 days. The average year of the Julian calendar is 365.25 days. The difference between those two numbers caused the calendar to drift one day every 128 years. By the time Pope Gregory XIII authorized a fix, the northern hemisphere's vernal (spring) equinox had drifted to around the 10th of March. The removal of three days from every 400 years changed the average calendar year to 365.2425 days, which changed the error from one day every 128 years to one day every 3200 years.

Why do we only have a leap year every 7 years?

We do not have a leap year every 7 years. It is every 4 years. It is possible that in a sequence of 7 years, that there is only one leap year in the middle of it. For example 2000 and 2008 were leap years, so in the intervening 7 years, there was only one leap year:2001200220032004 was a leap year.200520062007In order keep the calendar years synchronized there has to be a extra day added to February every 4 years. The other years that are not leap year are called common years.
