Full Answer

The devil's given name is Lucifer, which translates to "Light Bringer." Christian tradition holds that Lucifer was the most beautiful and powerful of all the angels. God made known to the angels his plan to create humankind, the fall of man, and the coming of his son Jesus Christ to redeem the human race. Lucifer balked at the idea of serving creatures he felt were beneath him. Tradition and the Book of Revelation hold that he convinced one-third of the angels to follow his rebellion against God's plan.

    How is a Chinese birthday determined differently to a Western one?

    A:

    While it is typical in the West to celebrate infants' first birthdays exactly one year after their emergence from the womb, Chinese people take into account the time an infant spends in the womb and consider newborns to be already 1 year old. Therefore, a Chinese person who has lived for 48 years from the moment of birth will actually celebrate the 49th birthday.
