As everyone probably knows by now, December12, 2012 was the last consecutive date for 89 years, until 01/01/2101. Which makes it special and for some couples, quite lucky. According to most published reports, approximately 7,200 couples got married yesterday on December 12, 2012 which is about a 1400% increase from the exact same date last year.
Couples came out in droves to have 12/12/12 as their wedding anniversary date. In Los Angeles, they were lined up as judges performed back-to-back city hall marriages for the entire day. Las Vegas was jammed with couples wanting to be a part of the 12/12/12 phenomenon and even in Chicago, wedding numbers surged with couples who hoped to be a part of something bigger than just any other day.
For now, the hype is over, but, the next big lucky day according to numerologists is less than a year away… you got it: 11/12/13!! It is my guess that someone will always think of a way to spin certain dates so that they appear ’LUCKY’ or interesting or numerically fascinating. For most of us, the only luck was finding the right person to marry, the date being much less of a factor.
