    One day, Sheery celebrated her birthday. Two days later, her older twin brother celebrated his birthday. How come?

    she was born on the 28th of Feb, while he was born on March first (both around midnight). In a non-leap year of course. Now it is leap year, putting the 29th between their birthdays! Do I get a gold star?:D

    At the time her mother went into labor, she was travelling by boat, plane, or some other form of transportation The older twin, was born first early on March 1st. The vehicle then crossed the International Date line (or anytime zone line) and Sheery, the younger twin, was born on February the 28th. In a leap year the younger twin celebrates her birthday two days before her older brother.
