So how to celebrate? If you just missed getting married at 12:12:12 on 12/12/12, then you can always try to scalp a ticket to tonight’s concert benefiting Hurricane Sandy victims at Madison Square Garden, give birth or schedule a C-section or induced delivery (in China, the number 12 and combination 12-12 is very good luck), or for certain lucky ones among us, celebrate your birthday.
While Mashable says today is not necessarily as popular as “Nerd New Year,” the nickname for last year’s 11/11/11 given it’s binary status, we think it’s pretty darn close. After all, great things come in threes – today’s date is 12/12/12, we have another perfect three at exactly 12:12:12 pm today, and again, today there are 12 days until Christmas. It’s a pretty powerful 1, 2, 3 punch!
