What sort of baby are you? (a.k.a What were ~your~ parents celebrating when...?)

.
A quick bit of mental arithmetic would suggest that those who're celebrating birthdays around the last few / next few days are "Christmas" babies i.e. conceived around 25th December.

My folks, on the other hand, would appear to have been celebrating the September Holiday Weekend

Soooooo, what were your folks doing when they were doing, err, whatever it was that we know that our parents must have done but that we as kids don't really want to dwell on?????




For those who are a wee bit arithmetically challenged, there's a handy calculator here.

I think you mean this one.

Looks like I was an Oktoberfest baby...

My parents claim I was New Year's Eve accident (a bit overdue according to the calculator though).

according to that calculator, I was conceived mid-September. Don't know of any US holidays after Labor Day they may have been celebrating. Wait a minute...my sister's birthday is around then

Re: What sort of baby are you? (a.k.a What were ~your~ parents celebrating when...?)

I actually figured this out once and realized that my parents were celebrating my father's b-day when my older sis was conceived, their anniversary when my younger sister was conceived, my mother's birthday when my younger brother was conceived and it happens my father was just returning from training exercises when we were hit by a typhoon and that's when my baby brother was conceived.

When I pointed all this out to my father, as well as the fact that "nothing" is attributable to likely conception period for myself, his reply was that I was conceived the night they (re)discovered how much they loved each other. (Thinking about it now, it was likely not long after my father returned from Vietnam.)

I really don't care. Apparently I was meant to be a Dalmation

Like probably 90% of the Portuguese, I was fabricated during Summer holidays... But I agree with Ouch there... I really don't want to think about it...

Re: What sort of baby are you? (a.k.a What were ~your~ parents celebrating when...?)

The calculator places the date of my conception around Easter, but I know I was a few weeks premature. So it must have been around my brother's birthday in early May. It wouldn't surprise me if they went, "Well, this one's three years old. Let's make another one."
