December 12, 2012

Today is the day that something happens that won’t happen again for nearly another 100 years. It will be 12/12/12 and this can’t happen again until 3012.

So what’s the big deal. Nothing really. It’s just an interesting number occurrence. No more or less interesting than 10/10/10 and 11/11/11. It’s the day that no matter how you abbreviate the date all three numbers are the same.

Some may tell you that it only happens 12 times every 100 years. To me I think that it on happens those three times. Who writes the month and the day with a 0 in front of it? How often did you see 01/01/01? It most often written as 1/1/01 or 01/1/1 for those who put the year first. Sames goes for 02 through 09. Then again 12/12/12 only happens once every 100 years.

It may be a very special day though since 12 appears a lot in our life. There are 12 months in a year. 12 hours on a clock. 12 days of Christmas. Jesus had 12 apostles to spread his word. There are 12 signs of the zodiac. 12 equals a dozen. 12 is also two 6 Things to Consider.

It can also be thought as the twelfth day of the twelfth month of the twelfth year of the second millennium. Although I suppose if you pretend that the start of the calendar was twelve centuries ago it could be the twelfth millennium.

Anyway have a happy December 12th!
