## The Day Before Yesterday I Was 25 Riddle

The day before yesterday I was 25 and the next year I will be 28. This is true only one day in a year. What day is my birthday?

Hint:

On carefully inspecting this question, one can understand that there are two days which are important and these are:

A. My Birthday.

B. The day when I am making this statement.

If you think for a while, you will understand that such statements can be made only around the year's end. So, if my birthday is on 31 December, then I will be making this statement on 1 January.

I will further explain using the following example:

1. Consider that today is 01 January 2017.

2. Then, the day before yesterday was 30 December 2016 and according to the question I was 25 then.

3. Yesterday was 31 December 2016, which happens to be my birthday too (Woohoo!), and my age increases by one to become 26.

4. I will turn 27 on my birthday this year (31 December 2017).

5. I will turn 28 on my birthday next year (31 December 2018).

Now, if you read the question again, it will make more sense:

The day before yesterday(30 December 2016), I was 25 years old and next year(31 December 2018) I will be 28.

YES NO
