    Mr Puzzel’s birthday is on 31st December.  He was 17 the day before yesterday.
    He was 18 yesterday.
    He will be 19 this year, and 20 next year!

    Example –
    Birthday on 31 Dec 2010.   Statement made on 1st January 2011.
    on 30th Dec 2010 – Mr Puzzle is 17 Yrs Old
    on 31th Dec 2010 – Mr Puzzle is 18 Yrs Old
    on 1st Jan 2011 – Mr Puzzle is 17 Yrs Old but in this year only on 31th Dec 2011 – He will be 19yrs Old
    Next year – on 31th Dec 2012 – He will be 20yrs Old
