Nevada’s favorite baby-making holidays may surprise you. I know I was surprised to learn that more babies are born in the Silver State nine months after the turkey and green bean casserole hit the dinner table!
That’s right, nine months after Thanksgiving Day, over three thousand (3,093) newborns took their first breaths in August. So, after consuming all of that turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean casserole, candied yams, and pumpkin pie, Nevadans are ready to get romantic? Yup. (burp)
Then they decided to go even further to figure out the biggest baby-making holidays for each state in America. Josh Kerr, Digital PR Executive for Connective3, was kind enough to send me the info for Nevada. Apparently, turkey makes us romantic. Who knew?
If you had asked me to guess, I would have said Valentine’s Day would be one of Nevada’s favorite baby-making holidays. But no, that romantic holiday ranks fifth in this study with 2,813 babies born in our home state in November, 9 months after Cupid is supposedly sparking romance. Cupid may need to change careers.
However, Mr. Jack O. Lantern is putting Nevadans in the mood, because nine months after Halloween, 2,947 babies were born during July. The spookiest holiday is ranked as the second most favorite baby-making holiday in the “Battle Born State.”
It must be the fact that we are thinking of family getting together to celebrate the holidays, because right behind Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day comes in a close third with 2,907 newborns arriving in September.
Rounding out the field in this study, Spring Break ranked fourth with 2,865 bundles of joy birthed during December. Independence Day comes in sixth, with 2,612 newborn firecrackers lighting up our lives during the month of April.
Here are the hard core stats that were compiled for each state if you want to check them out:
