Today is December 12th of 2012 or more affectionately known as 12/12/12 and it's the last repeating dates that we will have for most of our lifetime.  There are so many tributes and special events going on today that it's impossible to list them all, but we'll start with a song that helped us all learn to count to 12 (and it'll be stuck in your head all day).

I realize that I'm old, but that song will forever be burned into my head.  It really didn't matter what the real number of the day was, we all counted to 12 anyway.

One of my personal favorite sites, Mentalfloss, is compiling a list of 12's today. Everything from Christmas and boy bands to Shakespeare and Wikipedia are covered.


Kiam Moriya

There's the kid from Alabama who turns 12 today at 12:12 who says he'll celebrate by eating 12 donuts in the shape of the number 12.

The scary part about this is there are some wackos out there that are convinced that he is the antichrist.

By the way, since there is no 13/13/13, Kiam is also the last one who can have a birthday of this kind.



There is also a huge 'Sandy' benefit concert tonight at Madison Square Garden in New York.  Kanye West, Alicia Keys and so many other big names will hit the stage to raise money to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Whatever you are doing to honor this historical numerical day, make sure to leave us a comment and let us know.  We are starting the Twitter hashtag #WhenIwas12 and retweeting people all day that use it.  Just go to our Twitter page and throw up your moment of 12.

Oh, just one more thing for 12/12/12.
