October 5th, the US's most common Birthday

Posted by GoGo Goodie on October 05, 2011.

Did you know that more people in the US are born on October 5th than any other date?  Roughly 968,000 people will be celebrating their birthday today versus other days which average 750,000 birthdays.  Why today?  Well, count back 9 months and you'll be really close to December 31st.  Yes, New Year's Eve cheer and toasting might result in all the birthdays we see today!  

I guess that explains why our goodie bag shipments go up in October.  So, next time you sing Auld Land Syne look around your group of friends, you might be attending a baby shower soon!
