Happy Triple Twelve

It’s 12/12/12 today.
It is the last time this will happen in another 88 years. Just about all of us will have gone on to the other side by then so mark the day in some way.
This is my way.
We who rang the new millennium in, in 2001, have now had 12 triple dates starting on January 1st 2001 and going on up until today.
So I hereby pronounce this day as Twelve Day.
How many things are there twelve of? Lots more than I can enumerate, but let’s try:
  • Twelve apostles
  • Twelve pairs of ribs
  • Twelve days of Christmas
  • Twelve eggs in a dozen
  • Twelve months
  • Twelve zeroes in a trillion
  • Twelve inches in a foot
  • Twelve Tribes of Israel
  • Twelve jurors in a panel
  • Twelve function keys on a computer keyboard
  • Twelve signs of the zodiac
  • Twelve hues on the color wheel
That’s all I can come up with. Let’s see…how many is that?
