I used to think that was true when I was little! Because my friends and I always used to say "I'm six and three-quarters" instead of just six, so when people said, "He died at age 83", I took it to mean he was exactly 83, and that you could only die on your birthday.
If it were really like this, then I bet it would become customary to give presents either the day before, or the day after your birthday, in case you do die.
or half a year away would be an idea.
Both the days you said would be terrible days to get someone a gift.
You wouldn't give someone a present the day before they might die, nor would you buy a present for someone who could be dead when it comes to giving them it.
Maybe just not at all, and people could buy each other gifts when they wanted to.
True, but they could wait until the day after to buy the gift and give it later that day. Then I imagine it would make buying it even better.
I don't think I'd like that, buying someone a gift with one day's notice.
I think we have a winner.
Eh, idk then. Maybe a week after the birthday would suffice since six months might feel too long.
In The Five People You Meet in Heaven, I thought it was really cool how almost all of the important events in Eddie's life happened on his birthday.
You're more likely to die on your birthday than any other day, if that counts.
Cause it's the day people do things they otherwise wouldn't. They drink more, stay out later, do things like sky diving. It's a popular time to do things that are more dangerous so they're chances of death skyrocket. If you google it there's tons of sources that talk about it.
