Sequential date 11/12/13 calls for rare joy
(11-13 10:22)

It became a day for celebration, even marriage – at least for people who love numbers – as the calendar rolled over to 11/12/13, or November 12, 2013.
The only other sequential date still to come this century – at least in the American-style of putting the month before the day – will be next year, on 12/13/14.
After that, it'll be around another 90 years before the next sequential date, in 2103, with 01/02/03, according to the site numerology.com.
“Happy 11/12/13!'' popped up across the internet Tuesday, and on Twitter AsapScience called on people to make a wish at 14:15 (and 16 seconds).
Meanwhile, a number of American couples profited from the memorable date.
One such couple was Shanel Manzano and Elliot Bryant, both 27 and self-proclaimed math geeks, who said their vows on NBC's Today Show at 9:10 am exactly (creating a 9-10-11-12-13 sequence.)
In Lawrenceville, Georgia, marriage fees were waived at the courthouse Tuesday, and Fox 5 Atlanta reported that, by noon, some 20 couples had already taken advantage.
Next year's 12/13/14 falls on a Saturday.
Europeans, who write the day before the month, will have their chance for 11/12/13 next month, on December 11, 2013.—AFP
