2012_1212_S

The world is abuzz with the 12/12/12 phenomena.  Different people will have different reasons to celebrate or remember so, I will start.  12/12/12 is our anniversary – Happy Anniversary.

12 is an interesting number (yes, so is 13, 14, 42, 187 etc. ;)) – so here is some duodecuple (a term referring to a group consisting of twelve things):  There 12 zodiacs (in Chinese and Western system), Hercules performed 12 labors.  There are 12 disciples of Jesus (when Judas Iscariot was disgraced, a meeting was held (Acts) to add Matthias to complete the number twelve once more)  and there are 12 imams in Shia Islam.  There are 12 Jyotirlingas (epitome of God Shiva) in Hindu Shaivism.  The number twelve is often used as a sales unit in trade, and is often referred to as a dozen (unless you are a baker, because a baker’s dozen is not 12 but 13).  I am sure all of us could come up with some more interesting facts that wikipedia could list, all in all, it is just another number, yes, it is the last repeating calendar date that we will see in our lifetime unless there is a major health of medical breakthrough that prolong our lives.
