Birthday Math

I have 798 friends on Facebook.

Given a normal distribution, 2.18 of my friends would celebrate their birthday every day. But today 7 of them had a birthday – that’s more than three times the number expected.

All of this got me to wondering why?

Seems to me that it was a Happy Thanksgiving indeed!
