Believe it or not, September 17 is officially a brilliant day to be born.
Over a 10-year period there have been 8,862 births on September 17 – more than any other day throughout the year.
Clearly this begs the question, what was happening nine months before today? And the answer, of course, is Christmas! Obviously a time for parents-to-be to let their hair down and enjoy the summer!
It is also, as Practical Parenting’s expert Angela Mollard reveals, a great time to host a birthday party – and not just because they’ll have plenty of other September 17 babies to party with. Her reasoning? ‘You’ll celebrate your birthday during the footy finals!’ she says.
And you'll have a little Virgo on your hands. Virgos are thought to be intelligent, patient, and humble. With Mercury as the ruling planet, people born under this sign are quick-thinking, observant, and analytical.
