Today is December 12, 2012. Isn’t that an exciting date? It is the last time we will have that kind of identical double digit date in….. forever. For some it is ‘the anti-doomsday’, others a day of romance, with millions of couples getting married today. Today is a magical day, a lucky day, and according to Chinese numerology, the number 12 represents individualism and independence. Number crunchers have high regard for the number 12, mainly because of its divisibility capabilities. After all, it can divided into halves, thirds, fourths, sixths, and twelfths. So one can assume that mathematicians will find 12/12/12 to be three times more exciting than a normal “12” day. 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 people on a jury, 12 Olympic gods and goddesses, 12 days of Christmas, and Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. There are 12 inches in a foot, 12 ounces of soda in a can, oh, and let’s not forget about eggs – which are cheaper by the dozen!
Since we live in Las Vegas, there are many ‘lucky’ gambling options associated with the number 12. Craps uses 2 dice, totaling the maximum number of 12, a regular deck of cards offers 12 face cards. If you happen to drink too much and need some help, there is the 12-step program offered by AA.
Any way you look at it, today should be an interesting and fun day. We always need one more reason to have a celebration. We hope this is a happy and healthy day for you.
