What Is The US’s Most Common Birthday?
I just had a birthday earlier this week on April 3, and noticed I shared it with quite a bit of my Facebook friends.
But then today, when doing my usual morning Facebook birthday greetings, I noticed I had 10 friends celebrating their birthday today, April 7th.
It got me to thinking of April was the most common birthday month. Then I got to wondering, what was happening in our parents lives 9 months prior to that. For us April babies, that brings us back to July. The hottest summer month where our young parents were probably having the time of their lives!
So I have been thinking April must be the most common birthday month.
It isn’t. In fact April is not even in the top 10!
So What Is The Most Common Birth Month?
Gathered from birth data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Social Security Administration, here is what we learned.
While August leads the way as the most common birth month, the most common birthday is actually in the following month!
So What Is The Most Common Birthday?
September 9th! In second and third place are Sept. 19 and 12. So why September? Counting back 9 months from there brings us to the holiday season! The most common period of time for engagements is between Thanksgiving and Christmas! Of course during that time there is lots of love and celebration in the air, so that naturally leads to a little romance!
…and the least common birthdays are the big holidays of July 4, December 24th, January 1st and December 25th.
Who has time on those days to have a baby!
