Earlier this month we have discussed the fact that Oct. 5 is the most common birth date. ( Oct. 5 - most popular bday? ) But what is the most common date of death? It won’t necessarily be exactly the same date every year, but averaging over a long period of time there must be one date on which more people die than any other. Some possibilities I can think of
Some day around Thanksgiving: lots of travelling and artery-clogging gravy
Some day around Christmas: lots of stress, drinking, traveling, gravy, and (supposedly) an increased suicide rate
Are you only talking about the most common date for Americans to die? Since the most populous country in the world is China, followed closly by India, they must also have the most number of deaths. The dates you mention don’t have much significance over there, so any small effect they have in this country will likely be overshadowed by random fluctuations in those countries.
My vote would be for some time in the winter. There is less food, some places aren’t adequately heated which results in the old standby, hypothermia. Flu outbreaks generally happen in the winter, and influenza is always a big killer. Also, the rainy season hits a lot of tropical regions in the winter, which results in a whole host of mosquito born diseases.
