So, this is the reason why people have way more sex at Christmas
Turns out, Christmas gives us all the *~feels~*.
Yep, this time of year makes us want to have babies, as there is a surge in pregnancies from people wanting to start a family because they're in the festive mood.
Research, in the journal of Scientific Reports claims that an increase in pregnancies in society is dictated by cultural holidays.
The results showed that there was a much greater use of the word ‘sex’ and other sex-related terms in web searches during cultural and religious celebrations.
Luis Rocha, a professor in the IU School of Informatics who co-authored the study, wrote: "We observe that Christmas and Eid-Al-Fitr are characterized by distinct collective moods that correlate with increased fertility.
"Perhaps people feel a greater motivation to grow their families during holidays when the emphasis is on love and gift-giving to children.
"The Christmas season is also associated with stories about the baby Jesus and holy family, which may put people in a loving, happy, 'family mood.'"
See? It is kinda sweet.
