People Born in December Are Smarter and Tend to Live Longer, a Study Suggests

year ago

In addition to being born during the most festive month of the year, there’s a lot more that December babies are blessed with. According to a study, these winter angels have multiple advantages over the rest of us and tend to live a longer, happier life.

These findings have Bright Side hooked and we can’t wait to share the details with you. Plus, in the end, we curated a bonus section that will help you find your celebrity birthday month twin!

study was conducted to find if there’s a relationship between life expectancy and season of birth and the results came back bearing good news for people born in December. According to data, most people who live for more than 100 years, were born in the last month of the year. So, if you are a December baby, or have a baby who was born in December, know that you’re (or they’re) gonna be around for quite a long time!

And, if you are wondering what the reason is behind this, we have the answer. According to another piece of research, people born in December sleep better and easier when compared to others. Maybe since they are born with fireworks and so much light around, they learn to not bother with the external factors and just focus on getting some good sleep. Just a guess!

A more scientific reason behind it could be that they’re healthier. According to a study, female December babies have fewer chances of suffering from a cardiovascular attack or any other heart-related problem when compared to people born in other months. It seems like being born in December is as good as hitting the jackpot!

The list goes on. Apparently, winter babies are friendlier and go through fewer mood swings. They are able to control their emotions and temper better than people born in other months. Go, December babies!
