Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la - Happy birthday, sweet 16.

I hope you have a lovely day flowers cupcake

When do you normally celebrate - 28th February, or 1st March?

I've only ever known one person with a 29th February birthday - it seems to be quite an exclusive club smile

I knew someone who was a Leap Year Baby - and their sibling was born on the 29th four years later.

Thanks for your replies and birthday wishes.

Yes, celebrate on 28th February the other years but it isnt quite the same!

A neighbour of mine many years ago had a baby on the 29th of Feb and couldn`t decide what date to celebrate her birthday.
I suggested if the baby was born am id`e celebrate on the 28th if pm the 1st march.
And she did just that.

Happy Birthday to you wintersday smile flowers
I was thinking this morning it must be hard to not be able to celebrate the actual date every year for some people.

My SIL's Mum is 80 today, making it the 20th birthday she has celebrated on the 29th Feb. I think she usually celebrates on 1st March other years.

I was born in a Leap Year, and missed the 29th by a couple of days. I’m still furious about that. It would have been fun to have a Leap Year birthday.

My mum was born on 29th Feb. She would have been 100 today. As children, when we asked her age she always replied 21 and a bit. A big bit. She died aged 86, truly aged 21 and a bit.

DH's aunt celebrated her 22nd birthday this year!

One of my DIL's is a Feb 29th baby. She usually celebrated her birthday on March 1st. Her rationale is that she was not her on the 28th of Feb so shouldn't celebrate on that day. She celebrated becoming a teenager this year!

A child I know has both "Happy 2nd Birthday" and " Happy 8th Birthday" banners displayed on the house.
Quite taken aback when I pointed out their next proper one would be at age 12 😳
