How common is your birthday?


Ever wondered how common your birthday is?  What do you think is the most popular month to be born?  What about the most popular day of the week?  Why?

Courtesy of the CDC:  Vital Statistics of the United States – Volume 1, Natality (1994-2003), we can visualize it.

It’s relatively interesting to see that along with weekends, December 24th and 25th, January 1st, and July 4th are the least common days to be born.  After all, they are American holidays…
