12 twelve drummers drumming

Did you realize that today is a monumental day for the number twelve? So two times today it will be twelve minutes and twelve seconds after twelve o’clock on the twelfth day of the twelfth month in the year of 2012! Try saying that twelve times real fast! Ha!

Twelve is supposedly all magical and mystical, so I thought I would have a little fun and list things that are associated with the number twelve.

Are you ready?

LOL Yeah, Mom said that she “knew” I was going to watch the clock even though she missed it. I told her that it was okay because I would remind her next year when it is 8:9:10 on 11/12/13 LOL
