September 26th Is The Most Popular Day For Babies To Be Born Due To Boxing Day Sex
Babies are born every day; that's a pretty simple fact. Hospitals across the planet are inundated with freshly born humans all taking their first breaths and trying to make sense of their new world outside the womb.
However, there is one day that takes the cake for the most amount of babies born in 24 hours in the UK.
That, according to new statistics, is this coming Thursday, September 26.
If you wind the clock back a solid nine months, the average time it takes to brew a newborn, that would mean loads of these babies are being conceived on Boxing Day.
Who knows why the day after Christmas is such a randy one for Brits. Maybe it's the day after a fairly big religious holiday, maybe it's the hangover horn, maybe it's all that time off work and doing something to make up the time.
Whatever the case is, the numbers don't lie.
The Office for National Statistics produced the statistics on babies born across Britain and was analysed by Thortful. It found that, on average, there are around 1,800 babies that are born every day.
However on September 26, that number jumps to 2,000.
