Birthdays are always a time of celebration, whether you live in a small shack or the White House. How much do you know about Presidential birthdays?
- February may be the month in which President’s Day is celebrated, and most people remember the February birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, but two other Presidents were born in that month: William Henry Harrison and Ronald Reagan.
- Only one date has the distinction of two Presidential birthdays: November 2 for James K. Polk and Warren G. Harding.
- October has the most Presidential birthdays: John Adams, Rutherford B. Hayes, Chester A. Arthur, Theodore Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Jimmy Carter.
- September has the fewest birthdays: William Howard Taft.
- From the birth of George Washington in 1732 to Barack Obama in 1961, a POTUS has been born in every decade except for the 1810s, 1930s, and 1950s.
- Five of the last six Presidents elected (George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump) were born during the summer months.
- Nineteen of the forty-six Presidents were born in the 19th century.
