Today is a special day. No, it’s not Doomsday. That's tomorrow. Haha!

It’s 20122012

20th December 2012. A Double Match.

It happens only ONCE in a lifetime! You’ll never get such a number again. So I guess I would like to wish everyone a wonderful day!

If you feel a sense of deja vu reading this, that's because I have been posting a similar post every year since 2008.

Last year, the special day was on 20th November. That gave us 20112011

The year before, it was on 20th October. That gave us 20102010.

But guess what? The trend stops right here today! That's because you can't have 20132013 next year! There's no 13th month! So, 20122012 is indeed a very special day. Do appreciate the day before it is gone forever. 

While everyone was obsessed with the number 121212 on the 12th December 2012, I was more attracted to this date 20122012. The number 121212 may sound special but according to feng shui date selection, it was a bad day for travel, renovation and moving house. It was neither a good or bad day for wedding and starting a new business, but it was definitely not a great day for both!

Besides, 121212 is not a very unique number as it will occur again on the 12th December 2112, which is 100 years later.

By the way, if you must know, 20122012 is actually a good day for marriage, a much better day compared to 121212.

So do you think it will be the end of the world tomorrow? Personally, I don't think it will happen. But surprisingly, the feng shui date selection showed 21st December 2012 to be an unlucky day. It is a bad day for travel, renovation, moving house, marriage and starting a new business!!

If we are lucky enough to survive 21st December 2012 without any major cataclysmic event, then we should be able to look forward to the year 2013. As such, here are some significant dates for 2013.
