I was born February 29th 1988. Ive been alive for 21 years now but have only had 5 official birthdays.
Nothing really happens in between birthdays lol. I celebrate the 28th . It often starts debates between family and friends . They believe that I should celebrate march 1st. Well my argument is simple . I wasnt born in March I was born the last day of February.
When February 29th does come along then what happens is theres a much bigger celebration!  For example when I turned 5 my friends and I partied for 5 days lol.

I wouldnt trade my birthday for any other date. I love the fact that I am among the very few born on such a rare and unique day. I have yet to met anyone else born on this day, and I often have to show my ID to people. They never believe me when I tell them my birthday lol! .
thanked the writer.

Thats so cool i must say. So how often do you renew your licenses? Since your birthday is every leap year? How does that work?

I was born 29th February 1972 and I have always celebrated my birthday on the 28th of February on the other 3 years. Although the law states that I was not legally 18 until March 1st. I only discovered this when I was trying to get married. I have never agreed with this because I was born on the last day of February, I was not born in March.

I have a friend who was born on the 29th. He and his family celebrate their birthdays on the 28th of feb rather than 1st of March. But I think it should depend on their own choices.

I had a teacher who celebrated it on both 2/28 and 3/1. She figured if she couldn't have the actual day she might as well celebrate as long as she could.

One who is born on 29th feb can celebrate on 28th of Feb except for leap year. The age will be calculated once in 4 years loll. I mean if the boy is 4 years (actual age), it is considered as 1 year loll. I am just kidding
