How to Find Your Half Birthday

Your half-birthday falls exactly six months after your actual birthday. For example, if you were born on March 3rd, your half-birthday would be September 3rd. If you were born on December 31st, your half-birthday would be June 30th. Many people don’t know when their half-birthdays are, but they can be fun celebrating! Here are some tips on how to find your half-birthday: 

Check the calendar: The easiest way to find your half-birthday is to look at a calendar. Find your birth date and count six months forward. That’s your half-birthday! 

Do the math: If you want to get more technical, you can calculate your half-birthday by converting your birth date into days of the year. For example, March 3rd is 62 days into the year (3+31+28). Half of 62 is 31, so adding 31 days to March 3rd gives you April 3rd—which is also my husband’s half birthday! 

Use an online calculator: There are lots of online calculators that will do the work for you. Just type in your birth date, and they’ll give you the date of your next half-birthday. Easy peasy!

  • The first step is to identify the day of your birth;
  •  Once you know the day of your birth, count forward six months from that date;
  •  The day you arrive is your half-birthday!

How Do U Know Your Half Birthday?

It’s easy to calculate your half-birthday if you know your birth date. Take the number of days in your birth month, divide it by two, and add that number of days to your birth date. For example, if you were born on May 15th, your half birthday would be June 7th (31 days in May divided by 2 equals 15.5, rounded up to 16, plus 15 equals 31). If your half birthday falls on a day that doesn’t exist in the month (like February 30th), move to the next day in the following month (in this case, March 1st). 

So why celebrate a half-birthday? Some people believe it’s a good way to reflect on how far you’ve come in life and set goals for the second half of the year ahead. Others think it’s a fun way to celebrate being alive! Whatever your reasons, we hope you have a happy Half Birthday!

What is a Half Birthday Called?

A half birthday is called a “halfsie”! It’s the perfect way to celebrate being halfway to your next birthday. Here are some ideas for how to celebrate your halfsie: 

– Have a Halfsie Party! Invite friends and family over for cake and ice cream. Decorate with half balloons and streamers. 

– Go out to eat at your favorite restaurant. Make sure to order a dessert to share! 

– Spend the day doing something you love. Whether going for a hike, playing tennis, or visiting a museum, make sure you take some time out on your halfsie. 

– Give Half Gifts! Instead of buying someone a full gift, give them half of something they’ll love. For example, if they love chocolate, buy them a large bar and break it in half to give them both halves. Or if they’re into books, buy them one book and tear it in half, so they have two halves to read!

How Do You Calculate Birthdays?

To calculate someone’s birthday, you need to know the day of the week they were born and the month and year. You then count forward from the first day of that month to find the day of the week their birthday falls on. Finally, you add up all of the days in previous months to find their total age. 

For example, if someone were born on a Wednesday in January 1992, you would start by counting forward from Wednesday (the first day of that month) until you reach January 1st. Then, you would add up all of the days in December (31), November (30), October (31), September (30), August (31), July (31), and June (30). This gives you a total of 244 days. 

Therefore, this person’s birthday would be on a Monday.

Where Do Half Birthdays Come From?

Half-birthdays are a fun way to celebrate being halfway to another year older! But where do they come from? The tradition of celebrating half-birthdays dates back to medieval times. At that time, most people only celebrated their birthdays once a year, on the anniversary of the day they were born. 

So if someone were born on March 3rd, they would celebrate their birthday on March 3rd every year. But since a year is 365 days long, and most people live for more than 365 days, it didn’t make sense to wait an entire year to celebrate getting one year older. So people started celebrating half-birthdays instead! This allowed them to celebrate being halfway to another year older twice a year – once on their actual half-birthday and once on their “real” birthday. Nowadays, half-birthdays are still a fun way to celebrate! 

And since many people have summer birthdays, celebrating a half-birthday in the winter can be a great way to break up the monotony of the colder months. So if you’re looking for an excuse to celebrate, why not try having a half-birthday party?


To find your half birthday, you must first figure out what day your birthday is. That will be the day of your half birthday. Once you know that, you can count forward six months from your birth date. 

If your birthday falls on a day that doesn’t exist in a month with 30 or 31 days, you will have to count forward to the next month with that day.
