But then it would not fit the following:

The older twin would celebrate before the younger one.


First of all, I liked the site very much. Thanks for a site of this kind and I also liked the kind of people in here(varied mind set).

Just a little info that I know. In the twins, the one who is born first is younger to the one who is born later.
so what he says exactly fits.

How is the twin that is born first younger? If you were to expand the time gap between their birth by a year, is the first child born still younger? I would personally say no.
Example: If the first child is born in 2008 and the second child is born in 2009...how can the child that was born first be younger then the child that is born second. The first child is 2 years old and the second child is a 1 year old. Therefore making the first child the older child.
