What’s Your Number?

Do you have a date with destiny?

There is something about dates and numbers that I do find fascinating.  Today the Los   Angeles County wedding chapels are booked to capacity.  Just because the numbers are 12-12-12.  I wonder who will be married at 12 minutes past 12 noon today.  Will they be drinking twelve glasses of Champaign?  Perhaps they will go on a twelve day honeymoon ending on December 25.

The number 12 also has significance in the Jewish and Christian faiths from the 12 tribes of Israel, the 12 apostles and the 12 pearly gates of Heaven, said Frank Ponnet of Holy Family Church in South Pasadena. The number, derived by multiplying the holy trinity and the four corners of the horizon, represents “fullness.”  Most of us have heard the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas.”


However beware of December 21. The Mayan calendar predicts that is the day the world comes to an end. The Mayans were a very sophisticated society long before Europeans came to America.

My number is March 31. My birthday. It seems that major significant things have happened either on that day or a day or two preceding or following that day. I was married on March 30 (not my plan). The home we own was purchased on April 1 (April Fool). The best jobs I ever had were all obtained in late March or early April.

So what is your special number?



  1. Had to say i really enjoyed your article as i have also been tracking certain number combinations in our family. Our numbers see to be 4 and 8 and the numbers that correspond, like 31.13, 17, 26 and 4 and 8. Of my five children, 3 are on the 26th of a month and two grandchildren were born on corresponding aunts or uncles 26th day birthday. Its a fun pastime.
