12/12/12 – The century’s last repeating date. End of the world? or a very luck day? or a day for Romance? In some Asian countries where 12 is a very lucky number, expectant mothers are booked in for C-sections today to ensure a fortuitous birth date for their progeny. Wedding bells will be ringing in Hong Kong and Singapore, where couples are keen to tie the knot on a day which they say symbolizes love.
Many doomsdayers believe 12/12/12 will be the end of the world, thanks to an interpretation of the Mayan calendar. But, most of the end-of-the-world believers are convinced that the actual doomsday is on 12/21/12, when the Mayan calendar is set to end. Number crunchers have a profound respect for the number 12, mainly because of its divisibility capabilities. After all, 12 can be divided into halves, thirds, fourths, sixths, and twelfths. So it can only be assumed that mathematicians will find 12/12/12 to be three times more exciting than a normal “12” day. 12 has always been a significant number. 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. With so much significance on its side, 12/12/12 is seemingly destined to be a meaningful day. 212 Yachts – Let us know if today brings you luck, love, or something else very meaningful?
