Today is considered the luckiest day of the century with a date which will not be seen again for a lifetime.
Today - 12/12/12 - is the last triple number sequence date of the century - until January 1, 2101 - and our photographer Bruce Fitzgerald caught the exact moment the Courier clock struck 12 minutes past 12 to complete the sequence.
The date will reportedly see a huge increase in the number of weddings in parts of the world as it is considered lucky.
And for professional numerologists, 12/12/12 isn’t just a lucky day for lovers. According to numerology, 12 is considered a “three” number because the digits add up to three.
And three is a very good number because it corresponds with the largest planet, Jupiter, in addition to wealth.
