Oct. 20

They say October has the most birthdays of any month. In fact October 5th is the day with the most births. That is not hard to imagine considering that February is the conception month. When it's dull and grey and there's nothing to do well... babies are conceived.
Its something to think about when writing your characters-whether you set it in February or October.
What else causes a bump in births? Blackouts. Blizzards. War? Can you think of more? Cheers~


  1. I apologize for not visiting my favorite blogs lately, and i promise to do some catching-up with everyone in the next few days. We are experiencing cooler weather starting today (Thursday) and as for myself I'm looking forward to falls return to the Lancaster Pennsylvania area. And are the color of the leaves changing your your way folks as they are mine. Hope everyone has a great weekend and enjoy the beautiful fall season that has now begun. Richard from Amish Stories

  2. How fun fun to learn that fact. I'm an October 4th baby. Hummm, must've been a cold February in 1979!!!

    Out of my seven siblings, three of them had November babies, so I always figured we had unreasonably nasty Marches in those years.

  3. Linda, how funny- you missed the biggest birthday by one day- lol.

    We have a lot of July birthdays in my family so Aug/September conception- ha! just as the weather starts to cool off.

    Thanks for commenting. Cheers~
