“Default” birth days

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/02/24

I remember a very long time ago seeing someones passport with zero as the birthday. Boy I wish I had taken a picture back then.

    My father had to choose a birthday when he came to sweden, he chose 15/3. When my brother and his spouse adopted a kid from China he hit the same birthday. Though my father’s where some 2 years earlier than actual.
