We have had a good run, eh? From 1-1-1 through 12-12-12, and all the years in between that have had multiples of the same number in the year. We have to go back to 1988 for the last time we faced the last diversity in numbers in our year. This is also the last time we get a day that repeats numbers like this until the next century. I've heard there were a lot of weddings planned for this last numerical hurrah, as it were - we will have to see how many more babies we get to see the results.
To mark the date, here is a blog post to commemorate this special day before we return to bland numbers again.
