I was shocked to find that there is NO definition for wedding season on Urban Dictionary. Huh?! You can, however, find the definition to Bean Season. You really do learn something new every day...
|With Easter right around the corner, |
I think it's arguably Jelly Bean Season.
I'm going to depart tradition and say that, even without an Urban Dictionary definition, wedding season is a term. And it's not only a term but it's also a reality in enough people's lives that a whole movie was based on it.
What's decidedly NOT a term is "baby season". Weather has no impact on baby making and thus there is no season affiliated with baby births. Ummm, again, that's what I thought. Turns out there is sort of a baby shower season - late Spring. Statistically speaking, the most babies are born in the summer with August usually winning out as the biggest birthday month. This finding has proven to be remarkably consistent over the years. Nine months before summer times is late fall/winter time. So it would seem that when the weather gets cold there is a spike in indoor activities...
As you know, Next Stop Baby is about the time in life when wedding season is over and baby craze begins. But I guess it could have been about when wedding season is over and baby season begins. Just doesn't have as nice a ring to it.
Have these statistics proven to be true for you? Do you find yourself going to April/May/June baby showers for June/July/August due dates? I found a bunch of interesting birth statistics over at BabyCenter.com (here) that are definitely worth checking out.
