Not to be confused with Skins.
Themes are an aesthetic part of Leap Day. Each level will be assigned a theme, with a corresponding background and platform aesthetics. Themes are not selected randomly, but instead follow a specific order. They do not influence level generation nor the various components of a level, as those are always dependant of the level seed. There are currently ten levels which are cycled through for every level. Furthermore, the "Tomorrow on Leap Day" room which appears at the beginning of every level will display a preview of the theme selected for the next day. Each theme has two distinct platform types which are used throughout the level. Smaller platforms however have default textures which are shared throughout all themes.
