Odd Even Birth Dates

nickel_kg

My mom and dad were both born on odd-numbered days. All four of us kids were born on odd-numbered days. My DH's family is even: his mom and dad, brother, and himself all born on even-numbered days. DH=even, me=odd, our DD=even. So we're a mixed family of three. LOL. What about you: even, odd, or mixed?

If anyone cares to make this mathematical, have at it. Or suggest a more interesting topic for a dull day....

Dad odd, Mom even, exactly nine months apart. My dad used to say that the day he was born, the good lord got to work making him a wife.

BTW, us kids are even, odd, even. But I will say, my middle brother always has been a little odd.

DH and I are both odd and our sons are one of each.

Hmm, I never thought about it! My younger son is the "odd"ball among us. DH and I, older son, and all the grands are evens. Is DS#2 odd? Well, he's certainly smarter than all of us combined!

Never thought about before. My parents even, us even, our kids even, spouses even, grands are even. Guess that makes us odd.

Hallngarden, that's clever!, odd indeed :-)

There must be a way to calculate the odds of mixed vs all odd/even for a set number of people. But statistics class was a loooooong time ago.

I was born on an odd-numbered day, but everyone else in my family was born on an even-numbered day.

Us and our kids were all born on even years. 1946, 1948, 1972, 1976, 1978, 1980. Only one son was born on an odd day, all the rest of us on even days. But that son, as a child was like Contrary Mary. I called him Contrark Mark! If I said the sky was blue, he would say it was purple!

Parents both even. Two older sisters odd myself and two younger sisters even. The evens outweigh the odds in this case. DH is odd DS and DD are also odd. DN who lives with us is even.

Even though no one asked the kittens and dogs are all odd as well. The odds outweigh the evens in my family for birth day

For birth year it's even odd odd odd even even. The pets are even even even and even. The evens out weigh the odds this time.

In my family, all my siblings and I were born on the 18th. To make it more interesting, every house and property we have owned has been number 18. You could say it's our lucky number.

Yayagal, that *is* rare! For even/odd, every birth has about a 50/50 chance. For one particular number per month, that would be more like 1 in 30 chance. Then to have a streak of such occurrences....
