Is this a coincidence or a divine arrangement?
A mom in Taipei gave birth on New Year’s Day for the second year in a row, and now has a baby girl and her elder brother sharing the same birthday on Jan. 1, which many Chinese people consider auspicious.
The mother, surnamed Tsai, bought a cake to celebrate her son’s first birthday, and unexpectedly the cake can now be used as a double celebration because her baby girl was born on Jan. 1 as well!
Mrs. Tsai felt really happy and lucky, and said that double-tier cakes might work for the children’s shared birthday in the coming years.
In Taiwan, being a New Year’s Day baby is not only lucky, but also saves money. Mr. Tsai said: “We will spend less money when we go out because many amusement parks in Taiwan allow free admission for children born on Jan. 1.”
No wonder some women even try to schedule C-sections so that their babies will be born on that date.
How about giving birth to a third baby next New Year’s Day?
When asked about this, Mrs. Tsai said she wants to let nature take its course, and doesn’t mind if it just happens that way, according to Epoch Times.
