Today is the last time we’ll have this kind of a triple date in almost a century, not until January 1st, 2101. The date has sent numerologists into a frenzy, with a myriad of explanations and analyses, while others have flocked to wedding chapels across the world to have the auspicious date as their anniversary. And, as expected, there are some out there who worry about this date’s proximity to the end of the Mayan calendar on December 21st, 2012, a date some predict will be the end of the world.

From Las Vegas, to Hong Kong, couples waited in long lines to have the date December 12th, 2012 on their marriage certificate. And we even heard of a young boy named Kiam Ronan Moriya from New York who turned exactly 12 years old today, at 12:12PM.

Other December 12th birthdays include singer Frank Sinatra, game show host Bob Barker, actors Jennifer ConnellyKirk Cameron and Rajinikanth, and cricket star Yuvrag Singh.
