Some New Yorkers get a little more festive on certain holidays than others! 

An online sports betting site decided to take it upon itself to look into one particular way that couples across New York State celebrate their favorite holidays. And it’s…well… interesting, to say the least. 

Betway looked at the year-round birth rates in all 50 states to determine which holidays seem to lead to an uptick in births nine months later. In other words, which national holidays spark the biggest baby boom?

Their research showed that overall, most babies in the U.S. are born in August and September, leading some to believe that Thanksgiving and Christmas are the most popular holidays to make a baby. However, July also saw a lot of babies being born across the country, so it looks like Halloween is also a favorite time for couples to, well, you know.
