Spring A Suicide? Spring Born Get Suicidal, Says a Study
What has suicide got to do with seasons? An exhaustive study on suicide has revealed that suicidal tendencies seem more pronounced with those born in spring or summer.

Researchers analyzed some 26,915 suicides that occurred between 1979 and 2001 in England and Wales, and revealed that those born in the summer and spring seasons, when the weather is relatively bright, showed a 17% inclination to attempt suicide. This tendency was more pronounced amongst women, who showed a 30% likelihood of killing themselves if they were born anytime during April, May or June.
