December babies are more likely to live longer, be nicer people, better friends and probably will even become a dentist!

People born in December are more likely to live to 105 – or even longer, a study published in the Journal of Aging Research found.

Their birthdays may be last in the year, but they’re more likely to have lots of them, shares The Mirror.

December babies are nicer people

A survey of US college students shows people born in December complain less than others – and have less frequent mood swings. So they’re probably nicer to be friends with too.

December babies are less likely to contract heart disease

December babies have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, a study of 1,749,400 people from the United States suggests

The study’s principal investigator thinks the findings are down to “seasonal variations”, the Washington Post reported.

More likely to be a dentist!

One researcher found a statistical link between birth month and certain professions.

December babies were more likely to become dentists.

They are morning people

Research has found that people born in December are more likely to enjoy getting an early night AND waking up early.

They are basically getting on with stuff while the rest of us are still bleary eyed and making coffee.

  • I don’t think its written in stone anywhere.


  • I don’t believe in these type of studies.


  • I really do not like sweeping generalisations – every person regardless of when they are born has special qualities that make them unique.


  • Interesting thoughts.


  • My brother was born in December – he was a night shift worker, hated dentists, died at 82 and had heart problems all his life.


  • Excuse me! I wasn’t born in December but I am nice! (-;


  • Interesting. I wonder what it means for me as June baby!?


  • An interesting study! All positive results!


  • Interesting!! I’m a December baby!!


  • That’s interesting but it could be due to many other factors, right?


  • Has any research been done in other countries. What % of those born in December were actually checked? It’s a bit worrying how accurate this is when you don’t know the population of those born in December..


  • My niece was born on Christmas day, she turns 5 this yr, not sure on the research though, she doesnt go to bed early lol but does wake early


  • oh my boy is a morning person, about three am to be exact and then he thinks it is party time


  • I know plenty of December people who aren’t morning people! Not sure if I believe in this. I think all babies are special

    • All babies are special regardless of the month of birth.


  • My December baby is definitely special.
