  1. 25th of December, least common day of the year to be born.
This is a curious piece. I am always intrigued by infographics and the novel ways in which they represent data. Not least because the ubiquity of visual data in a modern lives.
However this also struck a personal note.
From data collected in the US between 1973 and 1999. The only birthday to be less common than 25 Dec is a day that comes along once every 4 years…Feb 29.
I do wonder if there is some sort of anxiety surrounding that day which means that mothers don’t tend to give birth then. How would this same graph appear in China, or Egypt where Christianity, and December the 25th, does not hold the same socio-cultural historic and political significance?
