Twins Birthday : Fun Facts and Figures


Worldwide there are at least 125 million living multiples.

Did you know that up to 22 percent of twins are left-handed? In the non-twin population the number is just under 10 percent.

The United States has one of the highest rates of multiples, while Japan has one of the lowest with multiple births occurring one in 120 births.

Twins are either fraternal or identical. Fraternal twins share the same womb, but come from different ovum. They are as alike as any pair of siblings. On the other hand, identical twins come from the same fertilized ovum and consequently share the same genetic makeup.

Incredible fact: According to the Guinness Book of Records, Leontina Albina, from the country of Chile, gave birth to the last of her 55 children in 1981. Her offspring included five sets of triplets (all boys).

The scientific study of twins is known as "gemellology." The word twin is probably derived from an ancient German word twine, which means 'two together.'

The average weight of a singleton newborn is 7 lbs. 6 oz., but the average weight of a triplet newborn is 3 lbs. 12 oz.

Fraternal twins are much more common than identical twins. The chances of having identical twins is about one in 285.

Identical twins exhibit almost identical brain wave patterns.

Genetic factors do not have much, if any, affect on the incidence of identical twins. Identical twins do not run in families

What a concept! There is a restaurant in New York City called "Twins." It was started by twin sisters and is staffed by 37 sets of identical twins who work the same shifts. Each evening they get 10 or more sets of twins or multiples who patron their unique restaurant.

Famous people who have parented twins:

Jane Pauley and Garry Trudeau
Ricky Nelson
Jane Seymour
Cybill Sheperd
James Stewart
Margaret Thatcher
President George W. Bush
Robert DeNiro
Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan
Mel Gibson
Ron Howard
Muhammad Ali
Denzel Washington

Did you know that Elvis Presley and Liberace were both twins? Their siblings died at birth.

The famed advice columnist's Ann Landers and Abigail Van Buren ("Dear Abby") are twins.

William Shakespeare was the father of boy/girl twins.

Who are currently the most famous teen twins? Easy! Mary-Kate and Ashley Olson.

April Fools Birthday

People have been tricked, duped and messed around with for centuries on April 1. In other words, people have been made fools of
Today it’s more likely that someone will fool with your mind than send you on a foolish errand, as was the custom for centuries.

Some publications might print spoof editions, or a friend might tell you something startling and then say “April fool!” according to Sharman Robertson, archivist and historian at Hallmark Cards. Or you might get a silly card in the mail, but that’s about as far as it goes today.

However, throughout history, Robertson says, people literally have been made fools of by being sent on foolish errands around the first of April.

"No one knows exactly when the custom began, but one story takes it back to the Bible story of Noah and the Ark,” Robertson says, “when Noah supposedly sent the dove out before the water had abated and the bird had no place to land. Others trace it back to the Roman Hilaria (think hilarious) festival in honor of the goddess of nature.”

April Fools’ Day was first celebrated in 1752 in England as an occasion for playing tricks on young apprentices who were asked to fetch a pot of striped paint or a two-headed hammer.

But the English were behind the rest of Europe when the calendar year was changed to begin on January 1 rather than March 25. (Gifts and visits had always been exchanged at the New Year season, which ended on April 1.) France was the first to make the change, and forgetful or conservative people were given mock gifts on April 1. The custom grew into sending the more naive on pointless errands. Perpetrators howled with laughter when the victim realized he’d been duped.

It's April Fools' Day and someone's Birthday too ! Yipee... it calls for a wonderful celebration that's fulla pranks, tricks and brain-teasers. Share some loud guffaws with the birthday guy/ gal by sending him/ her a special April Fools' Day Birthday egreeting. Make the day fool of fun 'n smiles for your loved one.

It's Your Birthday...
With a special gift play a prank on your friend/ family member/ near 'n dear one on April Fools' Day.

Birthday Love Poems

Check out these birthday love poems for your loved one:

I Love Just You

Hey, birthday love, I think of you
On days both dark and sunny.
You bring me joy in every thought,
My precious, loving honey!

So be my love for all our lives,
And I’ll be your love, too;
Each birthday is another chance
To say, "I love just you!"

A Birthday Sonnet For My Love

Another year has passed for you, sweetheart;
It's time to cut the cake and celebrate.
And once again, my love, I start to think
Of things about you I appreciate.

It means so much to have you in my life;
Your loving care fills up my days with pleasure.
Your warm and giving nature helps create
Close, special times together that I treasure.

I live within a safe and steady world,
Because you love me unconditionally.
Your easygoing ways mean that I'm blessed
With peace and joy and blissful harmony.

To me your birthday is a precious day;
I hope it brings you joy in every way.

Another Birthday Together

Your birthday marks another year together;
Such happy times, I couldn’t ask for more,
Spending precious minutes, hours and days
With you, my love, whom I cherish and adore.

We’ve shared so much, we two, in love and friendship;
Each year our bond just seems to grow and grow.
I always want to be right next to you;
To touch and kiss you means more than you can know.

You’re always there for me with a loving smile;
I’m never happier than when I know you’re near.
I thought my love for you could not grow stronger;
And yet I love you even more this year.

I Got the Gift

It’s your birthday,
but I’m the lucky (man, woman)
who got to be with you for another year.
It’s your birthday, and the older you get,
the more wonderful you become.

It’s your birthday,
and I’m privileged to share the years with you.
It’s your birthday, and each year
I find the depth of my love for you growing.

It’s your birthday, and I look forward with joy
to each day we spend together.
It’s your birthday, and I wonder how I got along
for all the birthdays I didn’t know you.

It’s your birthday, and it’s amazing
how easy and enjoyable it is to be with you each day.
It’s your birthday, and no matter what fate has in store for us,
I know it will be a pleasure to spend life with you.

It’s your birthday, but I got the gift--
You in my life for another year.

Your Birthday Numerology Reading - III

There is so much to write on birthday numerology that I am truly enjoying myself. Hope you guys are having fun too.
Being born on the 13th day of the month should help make you a better manager and organizer, but it may also give you a tendency to dominate people a bit. Sincere and honest, you are a serious, hard working individual. Your feelings are likely to seem somewhat repressed at times. Even if it by itself, you are apt to be much more practical, rational, and conscious of details. Your intolerance and insistence on complete accuracy can be irritating to some.

With a birthday on the 14th of the month you are inclined to work well with people and enjoy them. You are talented and versatile, very good at presenting ideas, and you are also very good at organization and systematizing. You may have a tendency to get itchy feet at times and need change and travel. You tend to be very progressive, imaginative and adaptable. Your mind is quick, clever and analytical. A restlessness in your nature may make you a bit impatient and easily bored with routine, and rebel against it. You have a tendency to shirk responsibility.

With a birthday on the 15th of any month, you are apt to have really strong attachments to home, family and domestic scene. The 1 and 5 equaling 6, provide the sort of energy that makes you an excellent parent or teacher. You are very responsible and capable. This is an attractive and an attracting influence. You like harmony in your environment and strive to maintain it. You tend to learn by observation rather than study and research. You may like to cook, but you probably don't follow recipes. You're a very generous and giving person, but perhaps a bit stubborn in ways.

Your birth on the 16th day of the month gives a sense of loneliness and generally the desire to work alone. You are relatively inflexible, and insist on your being independent. You need a good deal of time to rest and to meditate. You are introspective and a little stubborn. Because of this, it may not be easy for you to maintain permanent relationships, but you probably will as you are very much into home and family. The date gives you a tendency to seek unusual approaches and makes your style seem a little different and unique to those around you. Your intuition is aided by the day of your birth, but most of your actions are bedded in logic, responsibility, and the rational approach. You may be emotional, but have a hard time expressing these emotions. Because of this, there may be some difficulty in giving or receiving affection.

Your birth on the 17th day of the month suggests that you are very fortune financially, because this date is very good for business interest and a solid business sense. Although you are probably very honest and ethical, this birthday enables you to be shrewd and successful in the world of business and commercial enterprise. You have excellent organizational, managerial, and administrative capabilities enabling you to handle large projects and significant amounts of money with relative ease. You are ambitious and highly goal-oriented, although you may be better at starting projects than you are at finishing them. A sensitivity in your nature, often repressed below the surface of awareness, makes it hard to give or receive affection.

Your birthday on the 18th day of the month suggests than you are one who can work well with a group, but still remain someone who needs to maintain individual identity. There is a humanistic or philanthropic approach to business circumstances in which you find yourself. You may have good executive abilities, as you are very much the organizer and administrator. You are broad-minded, tolerant and generous; a compassionate person that can inspire others with imaginative ideas. Some of your feelings may be expressed, but even more of them are apt to be repressed. There is a lot of drama in your personality and in the way you express yourself to others. Oddly enough, you don't expect as much in return as you give.

Your birth on the 19th day of the month adds a tone of independence and extra energy to your life path. But at the same time, it poses a number of obstacles to overcome before you are able to be as independent as you would like. You are sensitive, but your feeling stay somewhat repressed. You have a compelling manner that can be dominating in many situations. You do not tend to follow convention or take advice very well. Consequently, you tend to learn through experience; sometimes hard experiences. 19 is a loner number and you may experience feelings of being alone even if you are married. You may take on a tendency to be nervous.

Your birth on the 20th day of the month adds a degree of emotion, sensitivity, and intuition to your reading. You are very social, allowing you to make friends easily and quickly. Yet you are apt to have a rather nervous air in the company of a large group. You have a warmhearted nature and emotional understanding that constantly seeks affection. You are very prone to become depressed and moody, as emotions can turn inward and cause anxiety and mental turmoil. It can be hard for you to bounce back to reality when depression sets in. When things are going well, you can go just as far the other way and become extremely affectionate.

Your Birthday Numerology Reading - I

We often wonder what is the significance of being born on a particular date. If I had been born on a different date, my personality, my luck, my life would have probably been unlike what they are now. In fact, I would have been a totally different me.
Want to know what each date symbolizes and to what extend does it influence your character? Read on to find out more:

The number 1 suggests that there is perhaps more executive ability and leadership qualities in your makeup. A birthday on day 1 of any month gives a measure of will power and self-confidence, and very often a rather original approach.It may diminish your ability and desire to handle details, preferring instead to paint with a broad brush. You may be sensitive, but your feelings stay rather repressed.

Your birth on the 2nd day of the month adds a degree of emotion, sensitivity, and intuition to your reading. The 2 is a very social number allowing you to make friends easily and quickly. Yet you are apt to have a rather nervous air in the company of a large group. You have a warmhearted nature and emotional understanding that constantly seeks affection. You are more prone than most to become depressed and moody, as emotions can turn inward and cause anxiety and mental turmoil. It can be hard for you to bounce back to reality when depression sets in.

Being born on the 3rd day of the month is likely to add a good bit of vitality to your life. The energy of 3 allows you bounce back rapidly from setbacks, physical or mental. There is a restlessness in your nature, but you seem to be able to portray an easygoing, sometimes "couldn't care less" attitude. You have a natural ability to express yourself in public, and you always make a very good impression. Good with words, you excel in writing, speaking, and possibly singing. You are energetic and always a good conversationalist. You have a keen imagination, but you tend to scatter your energies and become involved with too may superficial matters. You are affectionate and loving, but sometimes too sensitive. You are subject to rapid ups and downs.

Being born on the 4th day of the month should help make you a better manager and organizer. You may be more responsible and self-disciplined because of this date. Sincere and honest, you are a serious and hard working individual. Limitations may be imposed, especially if this number is active elsewhere in your reading. Your feelings are likely to seem somewhat repressed at times. The number 4 has something of an inhibiting effect on your ability to show and express affections. There is a good deal of rigidity and stubbornness associated with the number 4.

With a birthday on the 5th of the month you are inclined to work well with people and enjoy them. You are talented and versatile, very good at presenting ideas. You may have a tendency to get itchy feet at times and need change and travel. You tend to be very progressive, imaginative and adaptable. Your mind is quick, clever and analytical. A restlessness in your nature may make you a bit impatient and easily bored with routine. You may have a tendency to shirk responsibility.

A birthday on the 6th of the month adds a tone of responsibility, helpfulness, and understanding to your natural inclinations. Those born on the sixth are more apt to be open and honest with everyone, and more caring about family and friends, too. This is a number associated with responsibility and caring, and no matter what your lifepath may be, this birthday lends a degree of concern for others.

Cat Theme Birthday Party For Little Girls

A Perfect Way to Celebrate Her Special Day
Few things are as irresistible to little girls as cats and kittens. If you have a little girl who loves everything feline, a cat theme birthday party will be the perfect celebration for her special day.

Setting the Stage
Decorate with cat pictures, cat toys, and cat party goods. Give each child a headband with cat ears to wear as they arrive at the party.

Craft Activities
There are many cat craft possibilities to start out your party as the children arrive:

Decorate goody bags that have an outline of a cat already traced on them.
Decorate and assemble cat magnets or pins.
Give the children cat coloring pages to work on.
Apply temporary cat (or other) tattoos to the children's hands and arms.

Games to Play
Mother Cat May I? - Play this like the traditional "Mother, May I?" game.

Assign the birthday child to be Mother Cat and have the other children stand in a line facing her, but separated by at least six feet. Mother Cat calls to one child and tells her to take a certain number of steps toward her. Before the child can move she must remember to say "Mother Cat, May I?". Then Mother Cat answers one "meow" for yes, and two "meows" for no. If the child doesn't ask the question, or follow the correct "meow" response, she's out of the game. The child reaching Mother Cat first wins.
Hunt the Mice - Before the party begins, hide small toy mice throughout the party room. Tell the party children to hunt for the mice, while acting like kittens. Divide the found mice evenly among the children. Give the child who finds the most mice a special prize.

Birthday Cupcakes
Serve cupcakes decorated to look like cats using small candies as eyes and mouth, shoestring licorice as whiskers, and cookies as ears.

The Party Favors
Fill party bags with small, plush kittens; cat stickers; cat notepads; cat coloring books or velvet art projects; small cat change purses; cat erasers, etc. Look in your party store, dollar store and online. There are many small, cute cat goodies to fit most budgets.

Birthday Thoughts

This text has been going around chain mails for a while. Just like the video above. Please let me know if you know where it came from. It just gives you something to think about --

Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we’re kids? If you’re less than 10 years old, you’re so excited about aging that you think in fractions.
“How old are you?” “I’m four and a half!” You’re never thirty-six and a half. You’re four and a half, going on five! That’s the key.
You get into your teens, now they can’t hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead. “How old are you?” “I’m gonna be 16!” You could be 13, but hey, you’re gonna be 16!
And then the greatest day of your life . . . you become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony . . . YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS!!!
But then you turn 30. Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk. He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There’s no fun now, you’re just a sour-dumpling. What’s wrong? What’s changed?
You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you’re PUSHING 40. Whoa! Put on the brakes, it’s all slipping away. Before you know it, you REACH 50 . . .. and your dreams are gone.
But wait!!! You MAKE it to 60. You didn’t think you would! So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60.
You’ve built up so much speed that you HIT 70! After that it’s a day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday! You get into your 80s and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30; you REACH bedtime. And it doesn’t end there. Into the 90s, you start going backwards; “I Was JUST 92.”
Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a little kid again. “I’m 100 and a half!”
May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!

Birthday Parties Pressure On Parents

Yesterday I wrote a little bit on how birthday parties can be putting pressure on kids and how it might affect them in the future. Birthday parties don't just affect kids, they impact parents too.

  • Parents might not agree with each other on how big the party is and how it should be executed.
  • They can get in debt to organize their own parties or from buying gifts for other parites.
  • They might not have enough energy fo so much of planning, shopping, preparing... (well you get the idea). They might be overloaded and have too much stuff to do after the party too.
  • They might feel pressured to 'live up to' the community standards and to “make their child happy”.

You can read more about all this and interact with parents on Birthdays Without Pressure. I'll also have it up on the side bar so you can check them out.

And talk about birthday parties for kids, check out this ecard especially made for them.

Birthday Parties – Are they more work or real celebrations?

Birthday parties for kids these days are becoming more and more materialistic. Kids have to get the latest PS2 games, wii, or the latest iPod. Kids are facing more and more big parties and parents are overindulging – almost to the point of spoiling -- with too many presents. Birthdays Without Pressure lists the following consequences for kids --

  • They feel entitled to what they want, not just want they need.

  • They feel envious of friends who get more—and someone will always get more.

  • They feel disappointed, because enough is never enough.

  • Long term, they develop materialistic values that equate personal celebrations with accumulating things.

Do you have a kid? Do you think your child goes through this stuff emotionally? What about when you were young? Did you have parties that you couldn't handle? Do you equate personal celebrations with material things now?

Holla back let me know.
