If 12 is your lucky number, today is as good as it gets. This is 12-12-12, the last repeating date of its kind any of us are likely to ever see, and the superstitious are marking it in a lot more than 12 ways, the AP reports. Huge numbers of weddings are planned around the world, including more than 100 at the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. "The 'go-getting' 1 and the 'sensitive' 2 make this a very balanced number," the chapel explains.
Casinos are offering 12-themed promotions and stars including Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones, and Bon Jovi are headlining the "12-12-12" Superstorm Sandy benefit concert in New York City. Lots of children will be celebrating their 12th birthdays on the auspicious date, including Kiam Moriya of Alabama—who was born at 12:12pm. The "one-two" has caused today to be nicknamed "National Soundcheck Day," Mashable notes. After today, there won't be another triple date to match until Jan. 1, 2101.
