I harbor a certain amount of superstition regarding dates – so when I realized today is 12-12-12, I figure something special HAS to happen today. In fact at twelve minutes after 12 noon, I’ll be burning a few candles and waiting for voices from heaven.
From culinary cuisine to calendars, 12 has been a significant number since its creation. Just think about it – 12 months in the year, 12 hours of night and day, 12 astrological signs, 12 Olympic gods and goddesses, 12 days of Christmas, and Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.
Oh, and let’s not forget about eggs – which are cheaper by the dozen!
With so much significance on its side, 12/12/12 is seemingly destined to be a meaningful day. I think I’ll go put on makeup and get dressed in case Publishers Clearing House shows up with my check. They’ll probably bring along a TV camera.
