Happy December, 12, 2012!

A once in a lifetime date, 12-12-12 is here, and to make it a memorable one, this year, thousands of couples have chosen to tie the knot in celebration of this date - 12-12-12, which to them is “a once in a century wedding date.”

 December, 12, 2012 or 12-12-12 will be the last date of its kind -when all three numericals in a date are the same - for the next 88 years.
The next time this will happen is on January, 1, 2101.  Significance of 12-12-12 according to popular belief, 12-12-12 is a lucky date that will bring good fortune. Many engaged couples plan to hold their weddings on December 12, 2012, while some expectant parents hope to deliver their baby on that date.
However, for most people 12-12-12 will be a day like any other. Several people mistakenly believe that the end of the World as prophecised by the Mayans will occur on this date. However, the Mayan Calendar ends on December 21, 2012 and not on December, 12, 2012.
Yahoo! Shine in its report on a survey by David’s Bridal, said, approximately 7,500 brides will tie the knot today, December 12, 2012.
To put things in perspective, this figure represents a 1,446 per cent increase from last year’s date said to be “un-special 12-12-11.”
Today’s date is seen as a special one which makes it popular across the globe.
French news agency, the Agence France Presse reports that in Hong Kong, nearly four times as many couples will be married on 12-12-12, as compared to last year, and in Singapore, 540 couples will be married on 12-12-12, eight times as many from the previous year.
Marry Abroad UK, a planning website for weddings abroad, told Yahoo! Shine it has received a 15-per cent increase in inquiries about that date, despite the fact that it falls outside the traditional May to September wedding season.
Why so much fuss about the date from numerology standpoint, is that many people assume that the symmetry of 12-12-12 will bring them good luck.
But a numerologist, Daniel R. Hardt, advising couples on the choice of taday as their wedding date said: “Each couple in considering when to get married, should choose the date based upon their own personal charts to be sure that the date gets the marriage off on the right foot.
Hardt, a numerologist from the Life Path Numerology Centre in Indianapolis, United States further told Yahoo! Shine “12/12/12 is popular because it is easy to remember.
“That date reduces to an 11 number (12+12+2012) for the marriage, a high level of spiritual awareness.
“It also brings sensitivity and romance to the marriage, but there is a danger of one or both parties taking everything too personally.”
“The lucky couples who have succeeded in booking 12-12-12 will be amongst a very select few in the world, with such a memorable wedding anniversary,” says Marry Abroad’s co-founder Steph Bishop.
12-12-12 follows the trend of sequential numbers for wedding dates, like 10-10-10, 11-11-11, and 10-11-12.
Reports had it that, back in 2007, Las Vegas’s Clark County saw 4,333 marriage licenses issued around the date of 07-07-07, a huge increase in daily requests, since the office would usually license only about 7,400 marriages per month.
Yahoo! Shine reports that Canadian couple, Krisztina Sebesi and Rex Lu, who plan to get married on 12-12-12, have incorporated the date into other aspects of their wedding: thank you cards with palm trees with 12 coconuts, a buffet of 12 courses, and 12 starfish decorations on their wedding cake, they told The Windsor Star.
Though many assume that the symmetry of 12-12-12 will bring good luck, from a numerology standpoint, “each couple in considering when to get married, should choose the date based upon their own personal charts to be sure that the date gets the marriage off on the right foot,” numerologist Daniel R. Hardt, of the Life Path Numerology Center in Indianapolis told Yahoo! Shine.
There is, however, a major drawback to the date—12/12/12 falls on a Wednesday, not a popular day for weddings. “If 12/12/12 was on a Friday or a weekend, that would be a different scenario altogether,” wedding expert David Tutera told Yahoo! Shine.
Despite the spiritual symmetry, real or imagined, for some couples a weekday wedding is just out of the question.
