People who like numbers will be playing the lottery and even getting married on Tuesday as we experience the next to the last sequential date this century on November 12th.  That is, the 11th month, 12th day and 13th year, or 11-12-13.

If numbers make you feel lucky, conveniently, the Mega-Millions drawing is Tuesday night and lottery experts at say the chances of sequential numbers coming up in lottery drawings are actually better odds than non-sequential numbers.  Back in March of 2011, the Florida Fantasy drawing resulted in all sequential numbers, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18.  The only problem was that 47 different people picked those numbers so the jackpot what diluted considerably.

While some will be playing the numbers and even spinning the ‘Big Wheel’ at the Turning Stone, others have considered taking a much riskier step: getting married.

While the florists we contacted locally are calling it a typical Tuesday, it’s estimated that more than 2,000 people will tie the knot on this mid-week iconic date, according to a report in the New York Daily News.  It’s a growing trend among U.S. brides who plan to get married on an ‘iconic date.’

A survey conducted by David’s Bridal in New York City  says that 43-percent of all brides in the U.S. have considered lucky or iconic dates like last year’s 12-12-12 or this year’s November 12th.  While this year’s date falls on a Tuesday, next year’s is a different story.

December 13th, 2014 or 12/13/14, lands on a Saturday so you can be sure it will be a very busy wedding day.  To make it an even more iconic, it will be the last sequential date this century, or for most of us, in our lifetime.  After next year, the next sequential date won’t happen again until January 1, 2101.
