Fight Against Maturity

After 106 years what’s one day more or less?

One of Britain’s oldest women has been celebrating her birthday on the wrong day – for more than a century.

Lena Thouless, 106, a great-grandmother, from Bowthorpe, Norwich, has spent all her life celebrating her birthday on 23 November. But detective work by her daughter, Lena Brooks, discovered she should have been blowing out the candles the day before, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Mrs Brooks, 55, also of Bowthorpe, was stunned to discover purely by chance [when she found her mom’s birth certificate] that the extraordinary centenarian was actually born on 22 November.
