I you were born on February 29th of a leap year, then when is your birthday?

Your birthday would be a multiple of exactly one year, or 365 days, after your original date of birth. For your friend, her first birthday was March 1st, or 365 days after February 29th.

I thought that your birthday is the day you were born not a year later?

Well technically it is, but if you were to celebrate your first it would be the one year anniversary, and by extension exactly 365 days after.
