...it seems like folks will hold on until after Christmas and then pass away.

MacFamilyTree has a chart that shows the months in which your male and female ancestors died. For females, one of the peak months for deaths is December. Male deaths peak in January. This could be related to the holiday bills coming in.

The most female deaths occurred in September. In October there was a spike in male deaths. The month in which the most male deaths occurred was April. This was also a month in which there was a spike in female deaths. What's that saying about Death and Taxes?
