Three Birthstones 

In addition to having several birth flowers, December babies can choose from three beautiful birthstones: zircon, tanzanite, and turquoise. Each gemstone is a gorgeous shade of blue, but turquoise has the most significance. 

Turquoise is considered a love charm and is supposed to provide its bearer with protection, good fortune, and a calm mind. All of these will certainly benefit your December baby.

December Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius or Capricorn

December newborns are either Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21) or Capricorn (December 22 - January 19), and both have contradictory traits. 

Sagittarius individuals are extroverts who appreciate exploration and travel, while Capricorn infants are determined beings. People born under the sign of Sagittarius are always on the go, as their independence propels them far and wide. Kids will be crawling and rolling before you realize it. They like being surrounded by the people they care about, and those around them will be attracted to their warm and welcoming personalities. They dislike being left alone and may want more cuddling before bed.

Kids have extraordinary imaginations, so don't be shocked if one of their first companions is imaginary. They are humorous, and like making others laugh, so you may be dealing with a class clown. They are autonomous and dislike conforming to what others demand, but react well to the argument rather than punishment.

If your child is born under the sign of Capricorn, they will be somewhat less rambunctious. Contrary to December Saggitarius's newborns, they prefer to be alone and dislike being distracted by class clowns.

In addition to being intelligent and sensitive, Capricorn infants tend to be confident and stubborn. They also like regularity and predictability, making nighttime rituals an excellent choice.

Love Spirituality

December-born individuals exhibit a preference for spirituality. They develop an attachment to cosmic energy, unlike other people. They think something more and better exists in the world and place their utmost confidence in it. Thus, do not be shocked if your December baby offers you some life advice and discussions about God.

Extreme Athletes

Consider enrolling your child in an after-school sports program. According to The International Journal of Sports Medicine, December babies are more physically fit and athletic than children born in other months.

The explanation is unknown, but experts believe it has something to do with pregnant women receiving more sunlight and vitamin D. This results in stronger bones and muscles for their bundle of joy.

Very Rare

If you were concerned about your child's birthday falling on Christmas Eve or Christmas, then you wouldn't have to worry much. December 24 and 25 are the two rarest days to give birth in the United States. The chances are in your favor if you want to avoid celebrating your child's birthday on one of the year's most significant calendar holidays. Another very uncommon December birthday is New Year's Eve, which ranks 350th out of 366.

Prone To Food Allergy

A study published in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology examined children brought to Boston emergency departments with food-related allergic responses. They discovered that more of them were born in the winter than in the summer or spring. Again, the explanation for this is likely related to vitamin D exposure.

Better Temperament

Researchers discovered that babies born in December are likely to experience fewer temper tantrums throughout infancy and adulthood than babies born at other times of the year. 

A researcher from Budapest's Semmelweis University examined 366 students to determine their moods and temperaments. December-born individuals tend to have the most even-keeled temperaments.

Superior Academic Performance

Most parents believe their kids are at a disadvantage if they were borned later in the year since they have less time to develop their talents than their classmates. But, you will be pleased to learn that research has shown a persistent tendency of younger children surpassing their elder classmates. Give your child time to catch up, and they will soon be on pace with, if not ahead of their classmates.

Love to Travel

Sagittarians are renowned for their passion for travel. Your child will likely discover new locations once they reach a certain age. Capricorns also take great pleasure in learning new cultures. Therefore December-born individuals are likely to be aimless travelers.

Extreme Morning People

December-born individuals tend to be morning individuals, according to a 2009 research published in Sleep. They want to go to bed early, so they can wake up earlier than those born in other months. This is consistent with a 1999 research that examined human circadian rhythms and found that December people wake up earlier than any other months.

Lots of Famous December Individuals

Due to the holidays and birthday parties, December babies can anticipate many gifts. They can also celebrate their special day with some celebrities. These famous individuals include:

  • Zoe Kravitz
  • Britney Spears
  • Jay-Z
  • Nicki Minaj
  • Lebron James
  • Sara Bareilles

Enchanting Birth Flowers

The month of December is adorned with two lovely natal flowers, holly and narcissus. This is not surprising, given that they are both joyful and celebratory.

December is the month of the year when we celebrate with our family, friends, and other loved ones. Gifts are an expression of care and love for our loved ones.

Holly is essential to Christmas and New Year's decorations because it symbolizes delight, joy, and good fortune.

Youngest Student in the Class

If your child is born near the end of the year, they will likely be among the youngest students in the class. Your child will likely exceed the majority of his older contemporaries in college, making them ecstatic to be one of the youngest among their college pals.

Even though your baby might be the youngest in the class, but that shouldn't stop them from succeeding academically. Get them some goodies for brain development!

Most Likely to be a Dentist

The British Journal of Family Medicine revealed that December-born individuals are more likely to pursue a career in dentistry. The exact explanation for this is unknown. 



According to The University of Vienna, left-handed individuals are common among male infants born in the last two months of the year. The research involving thirteen thousand participants indicated that 8.8% of males and 7.5% of women were left-handed. Therefore, most guys born in November and December are left-handed.
