A birthday is only really complete with cake, streamers and a mountain of birthday cards on the doormat. And that mountain is quite big for the people of Groningen. In this province, residents receive almost the most birthday cards in the Netherlands, according to research by Kaartje2go.

Residents of Meerstad, Blauwestad and Midwolda receive on average the most birthday cards from Groningen. In Meerstad they even receive the most birthday cards in the whole of the Netherlands. The top three provinces that receive the most birthday and late cards are the three northern provinces, Groningen, Drenthe and Friesland.

Zeelanders send the most late cards

Zeelanders send proportionately the most late cards in the Netherlands, followed by residents of Drenthe and Friesland. In North Holland they remember the birthdays of their family and friends well. This is where the fewest late tickets go on the bus. In Drenthe, birthdays are the least likely to receive cards.

Attentive Brabanders

When looking at sending a personal birthday wish in the Netherlands, North Brabant is the most attentive, followed by Limburg. This is where most birthday cards are mailed. Residents of Flevoland send the fewest birthday wishes on average per resident.

January year olds forget most often

Is your birthday in January? Then you have the greatest chance of being forgotten during your birthday. The first month of the year is the month in which most late cards are sent. Birthdays in December are luckier, because the fewest cards are sent in this month when it comes to forgetting birthdays.
