How Popular is your Birthday?
If you were born on the 26th September you have the distinction of sharing the most popular Birthday in England and Wales. However, and not surprisingly, New Years Day, Boxing Day and Christmas Day are the least popular birthdays (excluding February 29th!).
Statistics released by the Office of National Statistics looks at the pattern of birthdays from 1995 to 2014, and with an average number of births at around 1,800 per day, that’s one every 48 seconds.
But there is a saying that goes ‘there’s one born every minute’, and this was actually true on Christmas Day in 2014, when there were 1,440 births (one baby born every minute!).
Check to see how popular your Birthday is by visiting the Office for National Statistics.
