Happy Birthday Etsians!

From this day forward, we want to help you celebrate one of the most important days of the year… your birthday! So we created a Happy Birthday Etsians page – out of warm and fuzzy thoughts – just for you. Feel free to help us celebrate an Etsian’s birthday today by visiting their shop.

Interestingly, after graphing the birthdays for all registered Estians, we discovered that the most number of people share a birthday on February 14th, Valentine’s Day (you can see the spike in the graph above).  No wonder there’s so much love at Etsy!

We can all thank a new member of our Visualization team, Drew Trujillo for this wonderful new application.  Affectionately known as Dr. Woohoo by his friends and peers, Drew brings an interesting eye for pattern and complexity to Etsy.  He’s made some very interesting discoveries about the Etsy marketplace that we can’t wait to share with you.  In case you’re curious, Drew’s birthday is November 24, plenty of time to find him something nice from Etsy!  😉

    Is there a link to this birthday page somewhere? or do we have to come back to this news story each time?

    too freakin' cool! I love the little hearts and stars that float around when the cursor stays in one place :) If Etsy grows large enough that graph will be a line ;)

    There's been some criticism of this new feature, but I think it is a nice touch. Thank you -- my birthday is in January and it will be fun for SOMEONE to celebrate with!

    Wondering why there are so many Valentines birthdays? Seems more likely there would be more November 14th birthdays ... 9 months after Valentines Day.

    Very cool. I'm aware of the 2/14 thing. I'm a 2/24 and I know/have known dozens of creative people born between February 14th through the 28th.
