Unfortunately, there is no specific month and day given for the birthdays of Amir and Hassan. In chapter two, it is revealed that, "Hassan was born in the winter of 1964, just one year after my mother died giving birth to me." At first reading one might assume that Amir was born in the winter of 1963. Amir was born in 1963, but it was actually the summer of 1963, as we find out in chapter eight, when Amir says, "I turned thirteen that summer of 1976." A few more birthdays and ages are mentioned through the book, but there is never a specific month or date given. So as close as we can get is that Amir was born in the summer of 1963, and Hassan was born in the winter of 1964.
