People Born In December Are Nicer And More Likely To Live Longer

December babies are used to being overlooked thanks to the madness of festive drinks, Christmas parties and everything else that comes with silly season.

Yes, it’s a great time of year for celebrating but as a December baby myself, organising birthday drinks is a logistical minefield when you’re trying to get all your mates in the same place at the same time with everything else going on.

But it turns out people born in December have something else to celebrate after a new study revealed that they’re more likely to live longer and they’re generally nicer to be around.

The study published in the Journal of Ageing Research found that Christmas babies are much more likely to live to be 105 than those born in any other month of the year.

As well as that, research has found that they’re also nicer people who are easier to get along with, complain less and have a much lower risk of cardiovascular disease.

So there you have it – if you’re born in December then you’ve got plenty to celebrate about this month.
