Date of birth?

I was born on my mother's birthday. Her mother's birthday -- my late maternal grandmother's -- was the day after ours. But a woman I talked to this morning has us beat. Her husband shares the exact same birthday as his father and his mother's father.

Now that's something.

Many families I know have clustered birthdays, the topic of my column today. Sometimes siblings' birthdays fall within the same month, cousins are born within days of each other or, as in our case, different generations share the same birthday.

Either way, it makes for fun conversation -- and for more work for party-planners!

Any clustered birthdays in your family?
