There are good and bad things about being born in each and every month, but while some people might think it would be fun to have your birthday coincide with school vacation or a time when gifts are already flowing freely, the truth is that there are plenty of downsides to being born in December.

Here are 14, from people who have plenty of firsthand experience.
