January Birth Month Fun Facts:
The January birthstone is garnet.
Garnet is a red gemstone that gets its name from the Latin word for ‘seed’. Garnet is said to resemble a pomegranate seed – a sweet comparison.
January has two birth flowers; the carnation and snow drop.
You may recognize carnations for their wide variety of colors, all with different meanings. The pink carnation represents a mother’s love, making it a thoughtful bouquet for a new mom this month. Snow drops also have a poignant message. Some of the first flowers to spring up in winter, they represent hope and beauty.
The most popular birth dates in January are the 4th, 10th, and 24th.
These days each see an average of just over 11,000 babies born in the United States, as of 2020. However, these days aren’t very common when looking at the year as a whole. In comparison, September 9th is known as the most popular day to be born, and around 12,300 babies claim it as their birthday every year.
…While January 1st is one of the rarest birthdates in the calendar year!
To be more specific, there is only one day with fewer births per year, and that’s December 25th – Christmas Day. A baby born on New Year’s Day will be one out of only 7,792, according to this chart using data on babies born from 1994 to 2014.
