Or, between the children there was a switching of a calendar, so while the other brother was in fact older in the other calendar, they went back a few days before the birth of the second son and so he was actually according to the official time born two days earlier.
There was no changing of calendar reckoning in the above scenario (as in Julian to Gregorian). Neither twin's official birthdate has changed, and both twin's birthdays are always on the same respective dates every year.

However, a changing of dates is involved in the given scenario. (Hint hint. )
