Today is 12/12/12... in fact, it's 12 PM right now! Today is the last time any of us will see a matching triple digit day in our lifetime!  (Assuming human life expectancy remains the same – but that’s another conversation for another time.) 

So, who's celebrating? Who's scared? Who cares? Here are a few fun tidbits about today's exciting date...

Today gamblers will play & wedding bells will ring as many superstitious people are taking advantage of these 24 hours.  And maybe they're on to something...some numerologists even say that today is a good day for making investments!  

Once-in-a-lifetime 12/12/12 date spawns mass weddings, superstitions

A boy in Alabama named Kaim Moriya is having his ultimate "golden birthday" today!

This Evening, a much anticipated concert will take place here in New York.  The 121212 Concert is being held to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Sandy and features an all-star lineup with artists like Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones, the Who and Paul McCartney, to name a few.

I love this one! Edith Freeman will turn 100 today, and what's her secret? She says - getting up early & keeping busy...oh, and her brandy and chocolate when she feels like it! 

It's a Lucky Day for Edith, 100

And for those of you keeping watch, 12/12/12 is not the date set to be the end of the world according to Mayan Prophecy, that's nine days later on 12/21/12... Or not. 

Have a great day everyone!!
