Tomorrow will be the end of the 10 day birthday streak for New Zealand where the mot birthdays a celebrated in the year.
A five-week period to October 19 also includes the 30 most popular birthdays, Stats NZ senior demographer Kim Dunstan said.
This is consistent with birth numbers being down at the time of all set public holidays, including Waitangi Day on February 6 (ranked 360) and Anzac Day, on 25 April (361).
The Stats NZ figures show 6219 babies were born on September 30 over the 1980-2015 period, 45 per cent more than the Christmas Day’s 4281.
A 40-week countback from the second half of September takes New Zealanders to the Christmas-New Year holiday period.
We guess a few Kiwis had a good new years eh?
But OOOOOOH THOSE SUMMER NIGHTS
