Twins! The same shining eyes, maybe the same facial structures, one may be shy, while the other loves socializing, which means they are same-same but different. It is said that raising one tiny is hard enough, and doubling the same in every aspect of parenting is insane!
It is estimated that one in the two-fifty pregnancies results in twins naturally, which is a very rare possibility, but now it is becoming more common than ever. According to the study, from 1915-1980, about one in every fifty babies delivered was a twin, at a rate of 2 per cent. By 1995, the rate had increased by 2.5 per cent and it had exceeded 3 per cent in 2001 and hit 3.3 per cent by 2010. So, now in the current scenario, we can find one out of every 30 babies born is a twin. Isn't that interesting!
Scientists predict that older women tend to conceive more twins.
The first full week of August is being celebrated as National Twins Day, a three days event of picnics, talent shows, and look-alike contests especially organized for the twins.
It is the world's largest twin gatherings.
“So many good things come in pairs, like ears, socks and panda bears. But, best of all are the set of twins, with extra laughter, double grins.”
