12/12/12: How Lucky is the Date?

Luck is on your side Wednesday, numerologists say.

It's officially 12/12/12. The world won't see another triple date until January 1, 2101, so how will you mark the day?

There are several theories on why 12/12/12 is such a lucky day, aside from the rare triple sequence of the date. Each year has 12 months, there were 12 apostles, there are 12 days of Christmas, 12 gods of Olympus...why shouldn't there be anything significant about 12/12/12 of the 21st century?

Well, since most people alive now probably won't see another 12/12/12, why not make it special?

Pope Benedict sent out his first tweet, scores of even expectant mothers in India are lining up to have Cesarean Sections or their labors induced on the date. And yes, there are those who believe a baby conceived on 12/12/12 is good luck. If you have long ago joined Twitter, or don't plan to get married, give birth or start a family, then you can do one of the following things.

According to numerologists, you might consider starting a business. That's because the digits in the number 12 add up to 3, which corresponds with the planet of luck and wealth, Jupiter.

You can also tune into the 12/12/12 Concert benefiting Hurricane Sandy victims. The All-Star lineup includes Bon Jovi, Alicia Keys, Eddie Vedder and Eric Clapton, to name a few.

Perhaps you can buy a Mega Millions lottery ticket today. Friday's drawing is $35 million.

No matter what you do, whoop it up and enjoy yourself. According to the ancient Mayans, the world ends in nine days on 12/21/12.
