Happy Bday Twins! flamelssecret/clap3.gif

Winter Solstice, 21 December, and the Newman twins have a birthday.

However, and here's a question. Are they 16? (the clue lies in the dates.) I'll post an answer in a day or so.


Michael

I see what you are saying!

If the books take place in the summer of 2007... and the twins were 15 that summer... Then December 21st 2007 would have been the twins 16th birthday!

So... Technically the twins are 17 on December 21st 2008!

Correct?

EDIT

Ok... per the date and day of Flamel's Daybook the events of this series takes place in 2007. May 31st was a Thursday in 2007

So the twins are indeed turning 17 today!

I wrote the book in 2005/6, and I knew it would be published in 2007.

So the story is "set" in May/June 2007 so I could keep my dates straight. Thursday 31th May occurs in 2007.

But, inasmuch as the six books take place is less than one month, they will be forever 15 and a half for this series.

And yes, you are correct. They would be 17 this birthday

... Assuming that they're still alive at the end of the series!

Well there is always that, I suppose!

I have faith that they will be, they're the heroes of the story! flamelssecret/clap3.gif

As we start this new year, can I ask you all to consider putting your birthday into your profile if you haven't already done so? We all like to wish our forum friends a Happy Birthday and we can only do that if we know when it is! flamelssecret/dance.gif

Mine is on my profile but the year is a lie...I will not be turning 100 this year...I might as well be though! flamelssecret/jawdrop.gif

I would prefer to retain the modicum of dignity I have though and not share it... I wouldn't have put the year at all if I didn't have to.
