I always suspected that New Year’s Day birthdays were not very common. I decided to into online, and see if any data exists regarding how common or uncommon Jan 1 is as a birthday.
According to this article, not very common. Jan 1 would be the 364th common birthday for babies born from 1973-1999, people from their late teens to early to mid 40’s.
To answer my own thread’s question I know only ONE person who was born on Jan 1. He is a guy I knew from high school, born on New Year’s 1987. Checking Facebook today it seems indeed he is the only contact born on New Year’s. I am myself was born two weeks early, Dec 18, and I know several who were born within few days of Jan 1.
Here is the article for sake of backing myself up.
So any Dopers born on this day or know anyone who was?
