Age Calculator

An Age Calculator is a very simple tool that will calculate a person’s age using that person’s date of birth and the date to be calculated at. Most of the Age Calculators will offer you as a result the age that will be calculated in years, months, weeks, hours, minutes and even in seconds.

How to use the Age Calculator?

We already said in the beginning that this Age Calculator is very easy to use. All you need to know is the date of birth and the date on which you want to calculate a person’s age. You’ll have have to enter these two dates in the Age Calculator’s fields, and then press the “Calculate” button. In just a second you’ll get the result calculated in years, months, days, hours, minutes and seconds.

Most of the countries use the same method to count the age of a person. Using this system, people know that the age grows at a person’s birthday. People say that a person who lived for 10 years and 11 months is 10 years old, and he or she will be 11 years old after his or her birthday, but not before that. For those who use this system everything’s very logical and easy, but there are some countries and cultures that have a completely different age system.

One of the most different age system is the traditional Chinese age counting system. Firstly, a person’s age starts at age 1, and not 0 as we normally count. Another different thing is that a person’s age grows at the Traditional Chinese New Year, and not when it’s that person’s birthday.

Considering these two facts, a persons’s age will be completely different in the Chinese age system than the age of the same person in the usual system.

One of the biggest differences between these two systems appears when a child is born with a day before the Chinese New Year, actually in the Chinese New Year’s Eve. The normal age of the new baby will be 2 days, but considering that age counting system, the baby will be 2 years old.

Firstly he or she will be 1 year old when he/she will be born, and after that, because they will count another year when the Traditional Chinese New Year will pass, as a result, the child will be 2 years old. This system isn’t very accurate, and that’s one of the reasons why isn’t that widely spread all over the world.
