November 11, 2011 – Comedian Steve Martin once said, “If I had one wish that I could wish this holiday season, it would be for all the children to join hands and sing together in the spirit of harmony and peace.”
Although the monologue goes on a very funny digression where he begins to ask for more wishes, along with “that crap about the kids,” today may actually be the day that we come closest to joining hands and granting him his wish.
At least that’s what some people believe.
For some of our more spiritual brothers and sisters today (11/11/11) may serve as a portal to empowerment to the Age of Aquarius – or the dawn of a new day when everyone becomes enlightened. We could all use a little enlightening.
To the Chinese, 11/11/11 also has special significance. They believe the number 11 is very powerful, and when you’re given three in a row, it’s bound to help your financial house. Surely you’ve gotten one of those emails referring to the Chinese feng shui belief of “moneybags” days.
Even if you’re not spiritual or superstitious, this date offers a unique once in a lifetime moment. It’s the only double-digit palindrome, reading the same backwards as forwards, an event which can only happen on one day every 100 years.
Now that’s something to celebrate!
