Happy Birthday To Everyone

What this says about my family is unknown, but today's the birthday of three of my cousins, Peter, Nev, and Dwight. And my grandfather (my father's father, thus also Peter's grandfather) would have been 100 years old today. Happy birthdays all around.

I believe this kind of birthday clustering within families is somewhat common, so I'd be curious if anyone else has experience with it.

Today is also the 41st anniversary of the Great Alaska Earthquake.

I've also observed this phenomenon of birthday clustering within families. Have you run across any research explaining why it occurs?
