Today's Pleasing Symmetry

Today is the last day of the century that the day, month and year match, making it a very pleasing symmetry.

The number 12 is a very popular and significant number. For mathematicians, the number 12 is a highly composite number - a perfect number, one which can be divided easily.  For biblical scholars, the number 12 has a great deal of significance in the Bible, as it is mentioned 187 times, 22 of which are in the book of Revelation.

I am not into numerology nor am I a mathematician, but today stands out as a symbolic day. Enjoy it while you can, as the numbers won't align again until the year 2101. Celebrate by buying a dozen roses for that special someone, or a dozen donuts to share at the office. Perhaps at 12:12 p.m. today, you could have a toast or take a moment for silent reflection or prayer.  Purchase a gift card for $12 bucks and give it to a stranger as a random act of kindness. 

Go get hitched! (today would make an easily remembered anniversary date).

Happy 12-12-12 and remember, there are only 12 shopping days left until Christmas!

I liked the idea of getting the $12 gift card and giving it to someone in need! It is a special day indeed; it was fun typing it 12/12/12!
