If there are 57 people together in a room (or just anywhere else), there is a 99% probability that any two persons have a birthday on the same date.

More than fifteen million people share the same birthday as you!

The most common birthday is 5th October. Did you notice that 5th October comes exactly nine months after New Year’s Eve? It seems people are very much excited on that day!


Birthdays are special for everyone. We love to contribute in some way to your birthday celebrations. Here are some fun facts about birthday…

The most common and the least common birthdays are Tuesday and Sunday respectively.

Birthdays started to be officially noted in the 19th century. Birthday records before that were not very accurate and these records were not kept for the entire population.

If you are in England, you will receive birthday cards by the Queen for your 100th and 105th birthday and then a card every following year!

The normal beating rate of a human heart is 72 beats per minute. Counting by that rate, your beats about 42,075,900 times between two of your birthdays.

The invitations were written on wooden leaf fragments and are known as ‘Vindolanda Tablets’. They are still preserved by the British Museum.

The most expensive birth certificate in the world is named to Paul McCartney. The Certificate was put on auction in March 1997 and it went under the hammer for a whopping $854,146!

August is the month in which the maximum number of people celebrate their birthdays.

Your heart is a great pumping machine. It pumps around 280 liters of blood every hour around your body. If we do the calculations again, it tells us that the heart pumps around 2,688,000 liters of blood every year!

The most expensive birthday party in the world was hosted by the Sultan of Brunei. He celebrated his 50th birthday on 13 July, 1996 with a cost of around $27.2 million.

The song is copyrighted at least till 2030.

The most popular birthday in the world is the Christmas Day which is celebrated as Jesus’ birthday. However, there is no historical evidence of Jesus’ birth on that day. More so, it is highly improbable that Jesus could have born in winter. 25th December started to be celebrated as Christmas day when Christians assigned the day as Jesus’ birthday to stop people from celebrating Saturnalia.

Birthday parties or celebrations started because in ancient times, it was believed that evil spirits attack a person on his birthday. To protect the person, his friends and family members visited with gifts and good wishes to ward off the evil spirits. Noisemakers were also used in such parties because people believed that the noisemakers would scare off the evil spirits.

  • If you are writing a person you can simply quote as follow :
    “Joyeux anniversaire Name.

    Your Name”

You should be polite so , adding “A bientôt” that is see you soon will make you suave and debonair )

    “Joyeux anniversaire Name.
    Your Name”
  • Short and simple always works 🙂
  • French people are not as creative as the British people for birthday cards, But you will find choice in papeteries(something that deals with artwork on playing cards or personal cards) and carteries(fancy stationary).

And experts have views regarding this as ,” Don’t go for anything like Clothing, perfume or any kind of decoration.” You may end up making the birthday person happy or sad. Probability is always 0.5 and it is not recommended until and unless you know the person completely.
  • If you are seriously boggled up what to offer then go with mainstream.Flowers for women and food for men is always good idea. Food can be anything like marcons, wine or chocolates. An orchid in a pot is always good idea to gift the birthday girl.
