Sunday, October 10, 2010


(EpicPonyz) Also, according to an article in yesterday's NYT, 39,000 couples have chosen today to get married:
Sunday is the big day for saying “I do.”
More than 39,000 couples chose 10/10/10 as their wedding day — a nearly tenfold increase over the number of nuptials on Oct. 11, 2009, the comparable Sunday last year, according to figures gathered by David’s Bridal, the wedding superstore chain.
The reason for the surge is a blend of superstition and symbolism, said Maria McBride, the wedding style director at Brides Magazine. “You cross your fingers and hope it lasts a lifetime,” she said, and so “a perfect 10, times 3” suggests good luck.
Good luck and best wishes to all the newlyweds.

Very cool! Wedding stuff...meh. But I understand the want for symbolism and and the lean towards superstition.

My brother's birthday is June 6th, so on 6/6/06, he made a lot of jokes about how he was going to hell to take over.
