A poll, done by Dr.Oetker, surveyed 2,000 adults found that Christmas day is the worst day for your big day to land on, followed by a ‘leap year day’ on 20th February.

The research was done to celebrate the ‘forgotten birthdays’ of Leaplings – a minority of Brits who only officially celebrate their birthday once every four years because they were born on 29th February, a date that only occurs during leap years.
