Well, Valdyans tend not to celebrate their exact birthday. In fact, most people don't even know (or don't care) exactly unless they were born exactly on a feast day (like Midsummer). They only know that they were born in spring, summer, autumn or winter, and celebrate on (and calculate from) the feast closest to it. Irina -- Varsinen an laynynay, saraz no arlet rastynay. (myself)
