Daily Dose of Weird: Mother and Daughter BOTH Born on Leap Day
What're the odds that a parent and child not only have the same birthday, but will only get to celebrate it every four years? About 2 million to one, apparently.
According to the Huffington Post, a New Jersey mother and her daughter were both born on February 29th, also known as "leap day."
(Michelle) Birnbaum turns 32 Wednesday, but will celebrate for only the eighth time on the actual date. It comes once every four years as the result of a system intended to keep the seasons, years, months and days in working order.
Though Birnbaum went into labor with her daughter Rose on February 28th, 2008, Rose wasn't actually born until the next day.

That's crazy! I guess it just goes to show that anything's possible, even if the odds are two million to one!
