People Make Babies On These Days In New York State
Everyone has different ways of celebrating holidays. We just wrapped up our Valentine’s Day festivities across New York State, and New Year’s and Christmas aren’t too far out of sight of our rearview.
An online sports betting site decided to take it upon itself to look into one particular way that couples across New York State celebrate their favorite holidays. And it’s…well… interesting, to say the least.
Betway looked at the year-round birth rates in all 50 states to determine which holidays seem to lead to an uptick in births nine months later. In other words, which national holidays spark the biggest baby boom?
Their research showed that overall, the highest months for babies to be born across the country are in August and September, leading some to believe that Thanksgiving and Christmas are the most popular holidays to make a baby. However, July also saw many babies being born across the US, so it looks like Halloween is also a popular holiday for future parents to, um, hang out (if you catch our drift).

Whether it’s because you have time to take a romantic couple’s getaway or because the kids are getting outside and out of the house, leaving more time for Mom and Dad to spend more time alone. Spring break is a popular time to make a baby here in New York State, with 0.888 babies born per 1,000 people nine months later.

The most popular holiday in New York state to conceive a baby is…Halloween? 0.957 babies are born per 1,000 people nine months after this candy-crazy holiday in New York State.
Maybe seeing all of the cute kids in their costumes makes future parents want to create one of their own? Or maybe it’s because costumes come into play…ok, yeah. We’ll leave it at that.
