I found this in the current Reader's Digest.
Notice how Moms take off birthing on July 4-5th?
I think that's because many births are scheduled now. But what about back in the day?
I don't think the holidays would have made much difference.
Babies use to just come when they wanted to.
Also, I never knew July-Sept are such popular months to be born in. I wonder why that is?
Sept 16th the most common birthday ever?
Interesting, because I have 2 siblings born that week...the 12th (today) and the 18th.
So apparently my parents were right on schedule with the rest of the world.
January and April aren't all that popular. Why?
And look how everyone takes Christmas week off.
