America’s Favorite Age
America’s Favorite Age

50 is the new 30!  At least that’s what I keep telling myself.  I’ll be hitting 50 with my birthday in 2014.  I’m not quite sure how I feel about that, but apparently, 50 is America’s favorite age according to a new Harris Poll. 

The online poll surveyed a total of 2,252 American adults which included men and women of all ages, all geographical regions, and all political bents. Some had children; some did not. All were picked from a pool of folks who’d agreed to participate in a Harris Interactive survey.

The question: If you could live forever in good health at a particular age, what age would you like to be?

The answer, based on the average: five-oh. Half a century. Or to put it another way, two and a half times older – and wiser — than Miley Cyrus. (And around the same age as George Clooney and Johnny Depp.) 

So if you’re 50th is coming up, blow out the candles and celebrate!
