Every person has a birthday and a golden birthday. Your birthday is the day you are born. A golden birthday is when you turn the same age as your birthday. For example, if your birthday is November 15th then your golden birthday is 15.
You can even have a double or triple golden birthday. It’s rare but it does happen. For example, my friend turned 17 on the 17th of March in the year 2017. Her golden birthday is 17, but she happened to have a double golden since it was the year 17 as well. A double golden birthday could also be when you turn double the age of the day you were born. ie: If you were born on August 15th, then your double golden birthday would be when you turn 30. If your birthday is March 31st, then your double golden birthday is 62.
What Is Double & Triple Golden Birthday?
Double Golden Birthday:
A double golden birthday could also be when you turn double the age of the day you were born. ie: If you were born on August 15th, then your double golden birthday would be when you turn 30. If your birthday is March 31st, then your double golden birthday is 62.
Triple Golden Birthday:
A triple golden is even rarer. It would be like turning 7, on the 7th day of the 7th month (July) in the year 2007. In that case, the golden birthday would be 7 as you would be turning 7 on the 7th day, but also having it on the month and year makes it a triple golden!
If you missed your golden birthday don’t worry, your birthday can also determine just how lucky you are that year (see more here), at least according to the Japanese lucky birthday rankings.
Other Facts About Golden Birthday:
Some people say that your golden birthday is actually the month and the day you were born combined. For example, if you were born on July 4th then your golden birthday would be 74 (the month plus the year). Or if you were born on August 30th then your golden birthday would be when you turn 830th. Obviously, that means most people wouldn’t have a golden birthday.
How To Calculate Golden Birthday?
The traditional way of calculating your golden birthday is as I said before, the day you were born. So if you were born on the 19th day of January then your golden birthday is when you turn 19. If you were born on November 3rd, then that means your golden birthday was when you turned 3.
Some say that a double golden birthday is calculated differently from how I described above. They say that a double golden birthday is a date you were born * 2. Say, for example, if you were born on May 7th, then your golden birthday is when you turned 7 and your double golden birthday is 14 (7*2) and that would make your triple golden birthday 21 (7*3).
- Every second of every day, 4.2 humans are born. This means that every day about 385,000 people are born. So you share your special day with a whole heck of a lot of people.
- In a random group of 23 people, there is about a 50% chance that two people have the exact same birthday. This is known as the birthday paradox.
But don’t worry, your special day is still YOUR special day and that’s all that matters. So happy birthday from me to you!
