(Newser) – While you people were warbling "Auld Lang Syne" and swilling bubbly, two East Coast women were busily birthing babies that were among the last of 2013—and the first of 2014, reports ABC. In Washington, DC, Yaleni Santos Tohalino gave birth to daughter Lorraine Yaleni at 11:58pm; son Brandon Ferdinando clocked in at 12:01am. Meanwhile, up in Toronto, Lindsay Salgueiro was not to be outdone: She gave birth to daughter Gabriela at 11:52pm, and just barely snuck Sophia over the wire at 12:00:38am. "They kind of got that golden ticket. They’ve got different birthdays," says Salgueiro. "They're going to be best friends for life."

The older twins made a nice 2013 tax break for their parents.

The ones born in 2014 will always be able to tease the ones born in 2013 about the fact that they're (the 2014'ers) younger than their 2013 siblings.
