I was on msn tonight and saw that headline so i just had to share. Isnt it neat that a pair of twins are born 26 minutes apart in 2 different years days and months? I wonder if they will end up being in separate grades and classes because of the year they were born in. I know the school i went to did that. A link to the news page i found it on. NOT A REFERRAL LINK http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28473708/?gt1=43001

hi! this is a clear manifestation that there are things that are difficult to explain by human mind. only God can tell us what lies behind every unusual things that are happening in our world. there would be scientific explanations to these things but are all those valid. we have to think of it deeply and if we will base it on spiritual thoughts we will see that God can makes miracles in our world. no one can ever do those things only God!

This is kind of a neat happening lol. As an aside I know a pair of 'irish twins', born 11 months apart in the SAME year. One is of course 11 months older than the other, they are both girls, and they look extremely similar. It was just like having twins for the parents, they were so close in age they went through every growing stage together. I think these girls were a year apart in grade because of the cutoff but I can't be sure because when I knew them, they were little.... 4 or 5 years old.

I've never heard the term irish twins before but i do know a couple little girls born the same year 10 months apart. I think its neat when siblings look really really similar and arent twins.

Usually school have a cut off date for enrollment by the end of September. So since they're born in January and December there shouldn't be a problem at all. I should be behind a year because I was born in October, but my mom put me in private school and now I'm a little younger than everyone else that's my year.

Thats cool. I think different school districts do it differently because i hear about people being born after september's end having to wait til the next year in some areas and then others if they are born in that year they can start.

i dont think it would make them be in separate grades since i know all the schools i know of through out my childhood had the cut off being in september or august and if you were born before then you got to start early and if after that you got held till next year etc.. but i think its cool that it will be different years and months for them.. it will help them be more individuals than just plain ol twins

That is really something. Thanks for posting this. Funny how everything has it's beginning and it's end, thus in certain cases such as this one, a few minutes really can make a difference. Were they born at 11:59 AND 12:00, a minute would make all the difference in the world.
