According to yahoo news, "October 5th comes roughly nine months after New Year's Eve, so it is probably no coincidence that it is the nation's most common birthday..." Can you belive that? If you don't believe it (like I didn't), you can watch a video about it at this website:

P.S. Thank you to my dear brother for sending this information to his little sister!
