Possibly celebrating Roger Bannister running the first four-minute mile, or Bill Haley & The Comets getting to Number One with 'Rock around The Clock'

Nothing specific. I guess my parents were just rabbits.

And again, I'm glad part of the minority since I and my siblings are part of the 10% of the Portuguese population were not created during summer holidays....

looool You do know it was a joke, I hope

Reason for that sentence is that my whole family was born April-June, and so did most of my school colleagues during school years, which made money a problem during those three months, always having to buy presents

I was the result of too much partying over the christmas period, apparently it was the fourth attempt for a boy. Thank goodness they stopped after me (I am the last born so as far as I'm concerned they never did it again after I was conceived)

Um. Yes. But like I said I'm always happy to go against the grain.

With our family (& friends) you couldn't "celebrate" easily in the summer months because it was always full house. All the time. Family overload!!

Summer holiday, and the IUD didn't work. (Was found later in the placenta).

I was conceived around my father's birthday, apparently.


Guess all he expected was a BJ - but as usual my mum overdid it......

TMI: I was conceived on the banks of the Ottawa River during my parents' honeymoon. I fled the room before finding out if it was actually on the ground or in the back of my Dad's van that was just parked by the river...
