Happy Birthday!

5 Oct

According to a survey by AnyBirthday.com, more Americans are celebrating their birthday today, October 5, than on any other day of the year.

How do we know this for sure? Well, AnyBirthday.com claims to have a database of more than 135 million people’s birthdays. And their survey asked 12,576 people — not a huge sampling, but big enough, I suppose.

(By the way, the least common birth date in the U.S. is May 22.)

If you think about it, it’s not sooo surprising that October 5 is a popular birthday. After all, what was nine months ago? That’s right, conception would have fallen on New Year’s Eve.

Oddly enough, I have more than 350 friends on Facebook, and not a single one of them is celebrating their birthday today.

But if you are, then allow me to wish you a very happy day.
