My wife has three different birthdays. When she came to the US her official documents dropped the "1" from "17". No matter, that was her lunar birthdate anyway. So she has her official government birthday, her lunar birthday and then her solar birthday. We typically (not always) celebrate on her lunar bithdate on the solar calendar. Does that make sense?

Haha not to me! I know that in Korea, I'd be 23 years... and in the Gregorian calendar Im 22... If I had another birthday where Im 21.... I'd want want to celebrate it haha :P

If I was your wife, I'd expect a gift on every birthday :P

I celebrate 2 birthdays a year haha. But Im not selfish, I buy presents for my friends on both birthdays :D

제가 한국 나이로 27살인데 캐나다 나이로 26살이에요.

보통 한국 사람들이 30살까지 결혼해야되다고 생각해서 남자 찬구 빨리 찾아야돼요. ㅋㅋㅋ

음.... 재미있는 착한 똑똑한 열심히 일하는 멋있는 키가 큰 여자 친구가 없는 남자 소개해주세요! ^^ ㅎㅎㅎㅎ

그런 사람 있어요?
