London based Kiwis get 36 hour long birthday days. At the strike of midnight KST (Kiwi Standard Time) the day of our birth, it’s officially our birthday as the Earth begins it’s slow rotation of the day.
The upside is 36 hours of messages, cards, birthday cake, toasting, merry making and catching up with friends.
The downside is that a lot of the people you love are pretty far away. But it makes you appreciate a hundred times more the family you make over here on this side of the world.
(Fyi, I haven’t been drinking at 8am this morning, it was a birthday drink last night (KST)
