Party Like It’s 12-13-14 | Truth Revolt


Today — 12-13-14 — is the last of the sequential dates for this century, and a lot of us aren’t going to make it to the next one on 01-02-2103. 

Sure, there’ll be Jan. 2, 2034, but it won’t be the same.

The Associated Press wrote a long story about the day, noting that “lottery players looking for a bit of extra luck love these kinds of quirky number combos.” 

On Sept. 11, 2002, the winning numbers in New York State’s Pick 3 game were 9-1-1. A total of 5,631 people picked the winning sequence; the combination was picked so many times, the numbers were closed out.

Maura McCann, a spokeswoman for the New Hampshire Lottery, said they anticipate selling more tickets on sequential or repetitive dates such as 12/12/12, but notes that lottery players get inspired by all sorts of things. In 2005, more than 100 winners of a secondary $100,000 Powerball prize played numbers linked back to the numbers in a single fortune cookie.

What’s more, a lot of weddings will take place (making those hard-to-remember anniversaries a snap). 

The Viva Las Vegas wedding chapel plans to marry 120 couples Saturday starting with Egyptian-themed nuptials followed by weddings with a touch of Tom Jones, gangsters, Liberace and, of course, Elvis, said general manager Brian Mills. The number is on pace with July 7, 2007 (7/7/7) but far from the 230 weddings the chapel performed for Nov. 11, 2011 (11/11/11).
