Fun Facts About December Babies

Did your baby arrive this December? Do you know what personality traits they may inherit, or what pretty birthstones they'll be paired with? You might think that astrology and horoscopes are nonsense, but it's always fun to daydream about your baby's future - will they be very sporty? Or share a birthday with a favorite celebrity? Here are some fun facts to get that imagination flowing!

Personality traits

Funnily enough, winter babies are more likely to possess a sunny disposition! It's been studied that children born in the wintry majesty of December will have fewer mood swings and temper tantrums - moms and dads, you've struck gold! Although, that's not to say we guarantee peace and quiet...

Birth flower

Your December baby's birth flower will be Holly, so sweet. These quintessential berries are a sign of domestic happiness, which could be the reason December children are known for putting their families first.

Possible career path

According to research, little winter bundles have been shown to be particularly physically able when it comes to sports. The reason why is a little unclear, but scientists believe it is something to do with moms-to-be getting more sun and Vitamin D while pregnant, which ultimately means stronger bones and muscles for their baby!

Food allergies

While there's always fear of your child being allergic to something, it's been studied that many children in the UK and US that go to hospital with food-related allergic reactions were born in the winter seasons rather than during spring or summer, so you may want to keep an extra eye out.


December babies have their choice of three bright shades of blue! Tanzanite, turquoise and zircon. Wearing turquoise is said to calm and balance emotions, and if you dream in this color it means victory and success are coming your way!

Star signs/ Horoscopes

Your little ones could be a Sagittarius (born between November 22nd and December 21st) which are said to be passionate travelers and likely to form an optimistic and enthusiastic outlook on life. Meanwhile, Capricorns (born between December 22nd and January 19th) are known for being ambitious, determined and kind. Either sounds pretty good, right?

What birthday?

Because they share their birthday month with a lot of holidays, studies have shown that nearly one third of people born in December say their special day frequently gets overlooked, while 27% claim their gifts are wrapped in Christmas paper. Oops.

Fun fact: The rarest birthdays in the year fall on the 24th and 25th December!


Whoever thought your child could have similar birthdays to so many celebrities? The December month also saw Lucy Liu (2nd), Brad Pitt (18th), Judi Dench (9th), Taylor Swift (13th) and Jamie Foxx (13th) celebrate their birthdays. That's what we call a party!
