I have 3 kids. All boys. The first 2 were born on the same day. 3 years apart. A good friend and her sister were born on the same day 2 years apart. WHAT ARE THE ODDS!? Oh about 1 in 365...unless its leap year.

Is it a miracle, or just the natural operation of statistics? Ooooh, now I have a headache!

Probability two people were both born on the same specific date: (1/365)^2
