Woman Gives Birth On Christmas, Under Christmas Tree

Around the same time Santa was preparing for take off, an unnamed Australian woman received the most precious gift of all. She was wrapping presents late on Christmas Eve when she went into labor and gave birth to a girl right under her tree at 12:06 am.

The Tasmanian Ambulance Service arrived when she was in the first stages of labor and at that point, they had to deliver right then and there. Member Bruce Connor said the birth went well and it was a great way to commence festivities: one of the intensive paramedics was wearing a pair of antlers.

The baby shares a birthday with some notable names: Sir Isaac Newton (1642), Clara Barton (1821), Robert Ripley of "Believe It Or Not" (1893), Jimmy Buffett (1946) and Annie Lennox (1954).

As for a name for the baby, we have just a few suggestions.
