okay, i know yall are gonna think this is a bit koo-koo but if i don't ask then i won't get answers. so, here goes- our mothers carries us in her womb for (typically) 9 months, right? (that's 9 months NOT 12 months.) so, why do we celebrate our birthday every 12 months instead of 9 months??? i.e - my b-day is october 12....so why would'nt i celebrate my b-day on july 12??? what happens to the remaining 3 months? are we older than what we think we are? yeah, i may be thinking a tad too much on this BUT i would really like some input. thanks in advance.
