The History of The Irish...Worldwide
To be born on a Sunday was considered a sign of great sin during Puritan times; a “Sunday Baby” in the southern U.S. is an illegitimate child.

Thanks Dee, I have always wondered about my day of birth, and as my Mum died in 1999, I have no one to ask. A really useful link - thank you!
Thank you Dee. I too think occasionally of my poor mother and my birth day which was a Wednesday and without doubt 'full of woe' I think she hung on for all she was worth, being alone in the world and not wishing her son to be born on April Fools Day. So being 'Full of Woe' is an acceptable compromise. Greatest mother any person could have.
"To be born on a Sunday was considered a sign of great sin during Puritan times; a “Sunday Baby” in the southern U.S. is an illegitimate child."
Well I suppose according to our religion to be born on any day, not just Sunday, would be considered a sin, albeit legitimate. Is original sin legitimate? And whatever became of Limbo? Where did the Limbo Dancers hail from?
