19 million other people share a birthday on the same day as you.

When 22 football players and a coach are playing in the field, even though there are 365 possible birthdays, the possibility, that two people have a birthday on the same day, is 50% !!!

More people are born in period from September 22 to October 5 in the United States than any other days. It holds a not-so-surprising significance, as conception would have fallen on Christmas holiday and New Year's Eve. 

The early Christians rejected the practice of birthday celebration as pagan tradition of astrology! Orthodox Christianity even now prefers the celebration of name days only. 

People born on 29 of February celebrate their birthday only once in four years.

Modern birthday celebrations and parties by kids (Kinderfeste) mainly came from Germany, where the birthday kid received presents, chosed a menu, and received a butter ringed around candle or a jam cake.

The song "Good morning to You" was composed by two sisters, Mildred and Patty Hill, in 1893, but nobody paid much attention to it until the original words were changed to "Happy Birthday to You".

Best known birthday in the history is that of Jesus Christ. For 2000 years from Jesus birth in Bethlehem, Christians have been celebrating this day as Christmas.

Let's celebrate!
