Today, 12.12.12, has been dubbed "The World Day of Interconnectedness" by a Swedish-Dutch coalition that is promoting awareness about interconnectedness "to empower people everywhere to co-create a sustainable, just and fulfilling world for all," according to their website.
They've been celebrating that interconnectedness since 09.09.09. So what's so special about 12.12.12?
- The much-anticipated 121212 Concert for Sandy Relief, featuring Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen, will broadcast live from Madison Square Garden at 7:30 ET.
- In India, pregnant women are scheduling C-Sections for Dec. 12, 2012 because the date is considered lucky.
- The website of a group called Simion that identifies itself as "seventh dimension light beings" points out the importance of the number 12 ("12 hours of the day, 12 months of the year, 12 in a dozen, 12 zodiac signs, 12 apostles, 12 days of Christmas") and the related 12.21.12, the winter solstice. (Of course, they also expound the importance of extraterrestrials, light orbs, angels, crop circles and something called DNA activation, so draw your own conclusions.)
- The Mother Nature Network has posted a collection of 12/12/12 facts, noting that Dec. 12 is the birthday of Frank Sinatra and that it's also National Ambrosia Day.
- And then we have wptv.com, which tells us "12-12-12 is not just a triple date sequence on the calendar, it's the last one we'll see in our lifetimes." The website states that the county courthouse is preparing for a flood of couples hoping to tie the knot. Is a wedding on 12.12.12 particularly lucky, or just an easy date for forgetful husbands to remember?
