1/11/11: Let the superstitions start
It's that time of the year: Some mystical convergence of numbers arrives on calendars and so we must seek out the deeper meaning, the greater truth. 1/11/11: An auspicious date if ever there were an auspicious date (especially since I missed the fuss on 1/1/11).
So what if natural sequencing numbers repeat themselves? So what if the last time this date came around the only really interesting thing that happened was that the Australian artist Nora Heysen was born? These numbers only line up a few times a century!
For Apple fanboys everywhere, the lucky day kicks off with the 11 a.m. announcement that Verizon will get its hands on the iPhone at last.
In teenager folklore, kissing a clock at 11:11 brings good luck. In numerology, 11 is a "master number" with psychic vibrations.
For followers of the South Beach mystic, Braco, being in the presence of the energy-filled gaze on today's date signifies "one-ness" and may work miracles.
And don't worry. If today winds up being just another average day, you can try again on Nov. 1 and Nov. 11, 2011, or 11/1/11 and 11/11/11. It's triple the all-one fun this year.
Anyway, regardless, Happy Five Ones Day.
