Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday cards that is!

Have you ever heard of the birthday paradox? It states that in a room with 23 people the odds two people in the room will have the same birthday is 50%. The odds get better the more people there are in the room. I test this in my classroom at the beginning of every year. It is a great getting to know you activity and the odds have not disappointed. Most years there are two (or more) people that have the same birthday.

With all those birthdays it is just a given that we will need some birthday cards of course. And who wouldn't love to receive one of these cute birthday cards? The design team has lots of examples for kids of all ages that are sure to put a smile on anyone's face!

  1. So funny that you say that about the birthday odds....My DT for the challenge blog I run has 24 members and there are 3 sets of girls that have the same birthdays! LOL!! I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee the cards!! Just GORGEOUS! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  2. Wow love the 3rd birthday card especially, but as always, they are ALL fabulous!!!

  3. That is funny..but how about this.. my uncle(by marriage) and my mom were both born on the same day of the same year. Then I am in a group of about 12 ladies and 2 of us have the same birthday..same year..etc.

  4. Fabulous cards, wow.
    One place I worked had 40 people in the department and 3 of us had the same birthday. I thought it was unusual. Turns out not so much.

  5. These cards are beautiful. Interesting about the birthday odds especially since I have never met another female with my birth date. I think I remember someone knowing a male that had my birth date but that is as close as I have gotten. :)
