    Depends on if you need the same year as well as day month. But the correct answer is 2. Once you have 2 the possibility is there.

I worked with new comers and in 600 people one year we had 3 with same names and same birthday yy/mm/dd and three sets of two people with same names and birthdate. yy/mm/dd.

This was an artificial thing, in some countries they do not track birth dates as closely and some sometimes just assign a date based on the know year.

    I seem to find more people who have birthdays the day before or the day after my birthday (which was in January.). That seems to be the case for the various show-biz & music type celebrities listed in the daily birthday roll in the newspaper (ie no one "famous" whom I think is "cool" shares my birthday!!).

Heh!
