Do you find that there are certain times of the year where you are much busier with birthdays than others?
In my family, there are a run of birthdays in April and June (including my own). Fiends report that they seem to have a sigh of relief when certain months have passed too.
This got me wondering... which is the busiest time in the delivery wards? The time of year which mid-wives dread (or love) the most?
Well, the results are in...
...and it's September!
Late September to be exact, with the the beginning of October also showing a high number of births.
Now I know what you're thinking... what was happening 9 months before that? Yes it seems that those cold, dark evenings, cuddling up in front of the fire and time to relax over the Christmas Holidays would seem to have a natural result.
The compilers of the data, The Office for National Statistics, suggest that there could also be another factor - Parents-to-be could be planning to have children at the start of the school year. Now that's planning!
So what is the most popular birthday over the last couple of decades?
It's the 26th of September. So...
...Are you, as the statistics suggest, about to get 'Birthday Busy'? If so, make someone feel special with a personalised gift to be treasured from Taffy Apple Gifts.
