It's birthday season!

October means birthdays in our family. This was discussed just this week on the FIAR boards (a homeschool group message board/website). October babies mean New Year's celebrations!

In our family it starts on October 5. That was my grandmother's birthday and the most popular birthday in America, due to the timing link to New Year's, I guess.

Then October 7 is my BIL's birthday and October 17 is my aunt and uncle's birthday. My brother's is October 21. Then my sons': October 26 and October 30. We continue on with my brother's son on November 4 and my other son on November 7. All of these boys had October due dates. Pretty amazing.

Then we finish up with my baby son on December 6 and my husband on December 11. This has nothing to do with the New Year's celebrations, but I didn't feel right leaving them out.

After discussing this on the FIAR boards, we determined that there is a definite pattern to birthdays. They almost always count back (9 months to be exact) to some type of holiday, a birthday or even a tragedy.

I just thought this was really interesting.
