I needed to change the date published to the 12th since I am in a different time zone. This broke the previously published URL.
Today’s date is the 12th December 2012. When written in shortened form it is 12-12-12. Each of the numbers is the same and this will not occur again until the 1st January 2101 which far exceeds my lifetime!
You may wonder why I chose to wrote a blog post about today’s date? Last year, the 11th November was another date with all numbers the same. The 11th November happens to be Remembrance Day which commemorates the end of the first World War when hostilities formally ended “at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month”.
I don’t think the 12th December has any special significance but it should be fun for those children turning 12 years old today. Happy Birthday!
