If twins are born on different days do they still share a birthday?

If the first twin was born before 12:00 am and the other was born after but still a few minutes apart, would they have different birthdays?

    If you crossed the International Dateline during labor the time change could change the date of birth so both babies have the same birthday.  That could also make the 2nd baby born older than the first depending on the National or Nautical Time Zone used which can be up to 24hrs plus or minus. 

    For an example when travelling from New Zealand to Hawaii the clocks must be switched 22 hours backwards.

    Technically yes, as their birth certificate would say the correct dates they were born.

    They could not only be born on different days, but in different months, years, decades or centuries.

    yes, isn't that how time & dates work? even a second into the next day, its the next day. I assume the parents would want things to be easier & consider it one though.

    Yes, your date of birth is your date of birth! If you’re born at 7:55 pm Friday 15th May, in New York, NY, USA it would be

    7:55 am Saturday 16th May, in China. But your birthday is Friday 15th May.

    Yes they would have different birthdays days as they were born on separate days.... but that does not mean that you cant host a party for them on the same day.

    No, if they were born on different days, they would not have the same birthday.   

    I hope that helped.
