Goulburn Valley people are having many special events today, December 12, 2012.December 12, 2012 4:44am
Today is truly a one-of-a-kind day.
December 12, 2012. The 12th day of the 12th month of the 12th year.
The date won’t repeat for a century.
And we won’t see another date like it until 2101 when it’s 01/01/01.
Today’s significant and unusual date will see thousands of people across the world flock to the altar to get married or hold special celebrations.
When it comes to the significance of the number 12, we’ve also got the 12 months of the year, the 12 days of Christmas, 12 members in a jury, the 12 apostles and even the 12 signs of the zodiac. We’ve got 12 hours on a clock. And we’ve already heard about celebrations today at 12.12
The number 12 can be evenly divided into halves, thirds, fourths, sixths and 12ths.
And despite some predictions of the end of the world, this is actually earmarked for December 21 this year — according to misunderstood interpretations of Mesoamerican (pre-European Central American) culture — not December 12.
Here at The News, we’ve had a lot of people contact us regarding their special events today.
We’ve got some great stories — one about a marriage proposal this morning for a couple which has been together nearly 12 years, one about a group of friends who have been meeting on quirky dates for about 50 years (they will meet for the last time today) and one about a boy who is turning 12 today.
No doubt social media will also be abuzz with references to 12-12-12.
