BabySugar Diaries: The Most Popular Birthday in America

Did you remember to wish someone a happy birthday today? Chances are you know someone who is celebrating their milestone today, the most common birthday in America.

When I was eight months into my pregnancy last year, my doctor and I sat down to discuss the birthing options for my second child. Having had a c-section with my first, and wary of a VBAC with this one, we pulled out the calendar and picked the date 10 days before when I was actually due, called the hospital, and booked it. Little did we know that my son would be celebrating his birthday with about 968,000 people — 218,000 more than the number of people who typically celebrate their birth on an average day of the year. While LilSugar has special birthdays plotted out every four years for her leap year baby, l'll plan celebrations for my Oct. 5 guy along with 967,999 other moms in America!

10/05 is my birthday! However, I only know of 2 other people with the same birth date. 10/10 seems to be the more popular one amongst my friends.

lickety split - according to the calendar, we are 9 months out from New Year's Eve if that gives you any indication as to why there are so many birthdays! :)

Wow that's weird. I don't know anyone born today, but I know lots of people with birthdays clustered around this date. Is that more common too? Seriously, I've always thought it kind of in incredible that I know SO many people born around this date.
