Take a Moment: Today is 12/12/12

If you've logged into your Facebook account today, you probably read chatter about today's date being 12/12/12. The hype about the last major numerical date using the Gregorian or Christian calendar for almost another century started earlier this week with several photos doing the rounds pointing out the significance of today's date. Whether it was referred to as 'sound check day' or simply 12/12/12, the fact remains that we won't see another date like this for a long time to come. There is no thirteenth month, folks.

According to the Toronto Star, the city has seen an influx of people getting married. A spokesperson for the city guessed that City Hall saw roughly four times the number of weddings compared to a normal Wednesday. If three 12s just aren't enough for you, you could have had three more at lunchtime today (and just after midnight this morning). Did you screenshot the time when it was 12:12:12 on 12/12/12? Let us know if you're doing anything special on this notable day!
