Introduction:December is a month of holidays and good spirits. If you have a birthday in December, then December is extra special for you because it is your birth month! If you are indeed a December baby, then this is the list for you! Enjoy discovering new and exciting things about your birth month with this list: The Top Five Things to Know About Your Birth Month of December.
If you have a December birthday, then you will have one of two possible astrological signs. You will either be a Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 20) or you will be a Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19). If you are a Sagittarius then you will be represented by "The Archer/Centaur." That's pretty sweet. And if you are a Capricorn, you will be represented by the mythical "Sea-Goat."
Knowing your birthstone is important if you want to know a lot about your birth month. December is a very special month, as it has 4 different birthstones! There's Tanzanite, Zircon, Turquoise, and Blue Topaz (which is just another color of Topaz). The first three are the main three though. Tanzanite is the blue/purple variety of the mineral zoisite which was discovered in the Meralani Hills of Northern Tanzania in 1967. Zircon is a mineral belonging to the group of nesosilicates that varies from colorless to yellow-golden, red, brown, blue, and green. And Turquoise is an opaque, blue-to-green mineral that is a hydrous phosphate of copper and aluminium.
December even has its own birth month birth-flower, which means you too have the same birth-flower. Or should I say birth-flowers? December has two: Narcissus and Holly. These flowers represent staying sweet, egotism, formality, foresight, and overall good wishes.
Many, many, MANY famous people throughout history have been born in your birth month of December. Here are some of them: Bette Midler, Richard Pryor, Woody Allen, Britney Spears, Amanda Seyfried, Julianne Moore, Ozzy Osbourne, Tyra Banks, Jay-Z, Walt Disney, Eli Wallach, Jim Morrison, Donny Osmond, John Malkovich, Emily Dickinson, Brenda Lee, Frank Sinatra, Taylor Swift, Amy Lee, Jamie Foxx, Dick Van Dyke, Flo Rida, Jane Austen, Ludwig van Beethoven, Christina Aguilera, Katie Holmes, Brad Pitt, Steven Spielberg, Keith Richards, Jake Gyllenhaal, David Cook, Kiefer Sutherland, Frank Zappa, Giacomo Puccini, Ryan Seacrest, Stephenie Meyer, Mary Higgins Clark, Howard Hughes, Dido, Sissy Spacek, Jimmy Buffett, Humphrey Bogart, Sir Isaac Newton, Jared Leto, John Legend, Denzel Washington, Jude Law, Rudyard Kipling, Diane von Furstenburg, John Denver, Eliza Dushku, and Anthony Hopkins.
