Last year, NPY’s birthday on the Gregorian calendar fell on the same date as his birthday on the lunar calendar. According to MIL, and quite incredible to NPY, this is the first time it has happened in 38 years. She doesn’t have to check really since NPY’s birth date fell on a festival day she observes every year so she can easily tell if the two dates ever coincided.
So it made me wonder if it just so happens that next year my “Western birthday” and “Chinese birthday” happen to coincide and they do!
And to thoroughly check, I looked back on all of the years using a web tool. It’s a lot of years to check… I found that my birthdays coincided once before in 1997.
