    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.
