Father and Son Celebrate their 11th Birthdays Together

Seamus Clarke thinks it is hilarious that he reached his 11th birthday a day before his father did. Seamus was born 11 years ago on February 28th. His father, James Clarke, was born on February 29th, 1968. Although that is 44 years ago, this is only the 11th time that date has occurred in his life.
Despite missing out on a total of 33 birthdays since 1968, the car salesman admitted being born in a leap year does have its benefits.

'I'm used to missing out on my real birthday, but being born in a leap year did have its benefits when I was at school,' he said.

'You know what children are like - especially boys. We were always giving each other birthday bumps or beats.

'But I usually got away with it because on February 28 I'd tell them "it's my birthday tomorrow" and then on March 1 I'd say "my birthday was yesterday".'

This year, the father and son are celebrating with a joint party. Link
