Traits > Role > Relationships > Sister > Full Sister > Catholic Twins

Siblings who are less than a year apart, or likewise siblings who are born in the same year are sometimes referred to as "Catholic Twins". A satirical phrase playing on the stereotype that Catholics have many children very close together in age.

The term is sometimes also called "Irish Twins" and the term can be traced back to 1850 and Irish Immigrants to the United States; however this term is now rarely used.
