I was a midnight birth, born somewhere between 7/16/71 and 7/17/71 (the doctor let my mom choose my birthday). For New Years babies born around midnight, the choice is more momentous -- a whole year's difference! But what about New Years twin births? A woman in DC delivered her twins in two different years
, three minutes apart.

Woody Guthrie's New Year's resolutions from 1942/43 are just great. I came for the doodles, stayed for the heartfelt sentiment, humanity and wisdom.
Update: Mark posted this in 2011 -- maybe we should make an annual tradition of it!
