In short, twins are siblings who come from the same pregnancy. Therefore, they always have the same parents and almost never have different birthdays. But don’t tell that to 4-year-olds Jia and Zuri.
The two best friends are convinced that they’re twins and want to set the record straight with all of their friends.
Jia and Zuri, both 4, love spending time together.
Zuri’s older sister Victoria shared a photo of her little sister and her sister’s best friend, Jia, along with an adorable story on Twitter.
The two little girls attended a recent birthday party and were both dressed as princesses. While at the party the twins, er, two best friends, were waiting in line when Jia overhead another little girl talking to someone who said the girl was her sister.
“You guys are sisters and we are twins,” Jia’s mother, Ashley Riggs Sarnicola, said that her daughter announced.
The two little girls firmly believe they are twins.

Sarnicola wrote on Facebook that the little girl questioned Jia’s claim by stating that the two of them didn’t share the same skin color, therefore there was no way they could be twins.
Jia shut her down.
“You don’t know anything, we are twins because we have the same birthday and the same soul,” Jia said in reply.
The Internet couldn’t handle the cuteness and innocence of Jia and Zuri.

Others praised the little girls.
A lot of grown ups could learn to be better people if they'd take a lesson from these two little girls!

Victoria told Yahoo Lifestyle that the funniest thing is that these two girls aren’t even related nor do they actually share the same birthday.
“They think that they are twins because they celebrate their birthdays together,” Victoria told Yahoo Lifestyle. “They haven’t realized that they are actually two days apart, but they do know they’re the same age, four, are in the same class, and do just about everything together.”
Jia and Zuri, keep doing you!
