I have the coolest birthday in the world, most especially today’s. I’m lucky enough to have a birthday in December when all the Christmas festivities are in full swing (and Chanukah, since I married my Jewish hubby 30+ years ago). I like that my natal day is early enough in the month that I always got plenty of presents both for my birthday and for Christmas.
Last night, I jolted out of a light doze at an auspicious time. I looked at the clock, and it read 12:12am. How perfect is that to open my eyes on my birthday and see it was 12:12am on 12-12-12?
Yes, I can hear you saying, “That was really 00:12. It wasn’t 12:12 yet.” Well, I just so happened to look up from my work (okay, I was Christmas shopping online) and I saw the above on my desk phone. I caught a quick shot of it, then also took a picture of my computer clock below.
I hope you enjoy the run-up to the holidays, whichever end-of-year festivities you celebrate. As for me, I’m going to party tonight with a few good friends. Because this date is special.
