Unless you were born on a Leap Year, you share your birthday with 1/365th of the world's population....(0.274%). The world's population right now is around 7 billion people...with a whole lot more frogs. This means you will share your special day with over 19 million people around the world...19,178,082, to be exact.
Broken down, it looks like this: You share your birthday with 859,178 humans in the United States. In China, that number jumps to 3.7 million people and in India, the number of people sharing your birthday is 3.2 million. There are 94, 473 Canadians celebrating with you, too, as well as 170,684 Brits. And in Nigeria, the number of birthday celebrators is 445, 126. These numbers could make gift-giving a little difficult!
In Vatican City, the least populated and smallest country in area, you will share your birthday with only 2-3 people. In the island country of Tuvalu, 27 individuals, on any given day, will sing Happy Birthday. Buying birthday presents in either of these two places won't too bad.
But if you were lucky enough to be born on February 29th, you share your birthday with 1/1461 of the population (366+365+365+365=1,461). So, worldwide, that means you celebrate with a mere 4,791,239 people! Better get a jump on all those party invitations because the next leap year is only 873 days away. Dividing that up, means you must address 5,489 invites each day. That's completely doable, right?
Whether or not you're celebrating a birthday, I wish you all a relaxing, fun, and a most wonderful weekend.
See you back here on Monday, as usual.
