Dear MEL Topic Readers,

These Indiana twins were born just 30 minutes apart, but in different decades

Twins were born in different decades. Can you solve this riddle?

If one of the twins is born before midnight and the other is born after the clock strikes 12, they have different birthdays. Likewise, if one comes out on a New Year’s Eve and the other does after New Year’s crackers are fired, they have birthdays in different years. When such birth occurred before and after a new decade, the twins have birthdays in different decades. This is what happened in a small town in Indiana, USA. A baby girl was born at 11:37 pm on New Year’s Eve 2019 and her twin brother came out half an hour later. It was already the year 2020.

If such cross-midnight birth occurs, there may be twins born in different centuries and even millenniums.

The family are going to have to stay up late on New Year’s Eve each year to celebrate the twins’ birthdays.

Enjoy reading the article and learn about this rare twins’ birth.
