11:11 am on 11-11-11

Not sure how we got to the subject, but my friend Amber was telling me* how much she loves 11-11 and that she and her mom always call each other at exactly 11:11 in the morning. Aw, isn't that sweet.

Anyway, that got me thinking about how rare a day like this is.
Think about it; the next sequence of all the same number will be over a decade from now on 2-2-22.
But if you're a purist (are there numerology purists?), then that date might be considered 02-02-22 and wouldn't count. Then the next one wouldn't be until a century from now.

So I'm gonna make my wish, enjoy this magical day, and hit up the Mt. Ida Elevenses Party tonight.

*Note: I wrote this in October, but scheduled it to post on November 11th.


  1. Haha, great minds think alike? My blog post is about this as well today! Although, I wrote it approximately...15 minutes ago :) Haha.

  2. What about 12:12 on 12-12-12? I mean, not as cool as 11:11 11/11/11...but not too shabby.

  3. Jen, you make a good point. I guess I was focusing on the single digit, but that's a nice multi-digit repeating number, and I'm sure we'll all go coo-coo for it as 12-12-12 gets close.
