Birthday Girl is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. For the puzzle in the European version of the game, go here.

## Puzzle

When asked about her birthday, a young woman gives the following information:

"The day after tomorrow, I turn 22, but I was still 19 on New Year's Day last year."

When is her birthday?

## Hints

Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

The first thing you should do is determine what day this exchange is taking place.

The woman says she's turning 22 in two days, so right now she must be 21.

Hopefully these two points will give you something to go on.

The woman will turn 22 in two days, and her birthday, like all birthdays, lasts but one day.

She also mentions her age last year. A year, on the other hand, is a much larger period of time to deal with.

In order for her statement to be true, her birthday needs to fall on a particular day. Think about how the above two facts help to narrow the possibilities.

This conversation took place at the very end of the year.

If her birthday is in two days, it will have to be after New Year's Eve.

That's right, it will be a new year by the day after tomorrow.
