Good question. December 30th: you were 8 years old. December 31st: you turned 9. Today is Jan 1st of the next year. This year, on December 31st you are again gonna turn 10. The next year you will turn 11.

Or maybe your age is simply in base 10 and 8 respectively

so on 31st Dec of year X age = 9, (if on 30th u were 8)

31st of next year, which is the "next day", you'd be 10.

Jan 1st of the next year, u wud be 10 and that yr's dec 31 = 11 yr
