Baby births by day of the year:
- Funny how the sweet spot for births in mid-September, which averages about 38 weeks after “the act”, corresponds to dates between December 16th and December 31st. That’s a lot of sales pitches for better gifts and rewards for good ones.*
- Funny how such a random event doesn’t fall on New Year’s Day, July 4th, or Christmas. More power to our ability to schedule life’s little speed bumps.
Do note that in this version, the coloring of the callouts on the right-hand side is incorrect.

* I never got a clear story for their certainty, but my parents were quite sure that my mid-August birth date corresponded to a hotel in Binghamton over Thanksgiving weekend in 1963. For my money though, the dates correspond better to an emotional response to the Kennedy assassination.
