Two Sets of Twins Born in Two Separate Years Over the Weekend

Twins share a lot of things, but not always the same birthday, or birth year

As if twins aren’t already fascinating enough.

The same eyes! The same nose! The same lips! The same birthday!

Actually, the latter isn’t always true. In fact, some twins are not only not born on the same day, but also not in the same year. It happened twice over this past weekend alone, according to the New York Daily News.

A Minnesota mom gave birth to one baby at 6:40 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, and the other at 12:26 a.m. on New Year’s Day.

And a Buffalo, N.Y., mom gave birth to one baby at 11:37 p.m. on Dec. 31, and the second baby at 12:10 a.m. on Jan. 1.

Although twins, at least the babies are forming at least part of their own identities as early on in life as possible.
