The middle of the year, and the middle of summer vacation, July is typically a time for celebrating with family. With Independence Day early in the month, the time is right for grilling, swimming, and taking advantage of the long daylight hours. And of course, you'll have that one friend who mentions how many Fridays are left until Christmas, right?

Even better news? According to studies, “babies born in July are generally more optimistic through life.”
