You wake up in the morning and bang, the date is 12/12/12. December 12, 2012 has '12's in a row, the numerologists of the world certainly could not let this one pass. There had to be a huge discussion and hype around this very special date. Many would-be parents have even requested their doctor to do C-section deliveries on this day so that their baby can have a fancy date of birth!

Any way, 2012 is doomsday for the world. The world is scheduled to end on December 21, 2012. Then why all this noise about it 10 days in advance?There are many reasons why we consider 12 December, 2012 as a special date. Here are some of the most obvious ones.

Why 12 December 2012 Is Special?

Numerologically Speaking: You know the science of numerology is all about adding up the numerical digits of a date. And when you add up the digits of 12/12/12 and 21/12/12, it comes to the same figure of 11. So numerologically speaking, 12th of December and 21st of December 2012 have the same value. May be the catastrophe of the 2012 doomsday will come 10 days earlier.

The Greek Analogy: Every mystical connotation always trace back to the ancient Greeks. After all, it was one of the oldest and longest surviving civilisations of the world. According to Greek mythology, the number one stands for Zeus, the God of Thunder and the Lord of all the other Gods. The number 2 is symbolic of Hera, Zeus's wife and sister. She is the queen of Mount Olympus and the soul mate of Zeus. The number 12 thus has both Zeus and Hera together. So 12 is the number of perfect balance in the Universe. And 12 December 2012 has 2 '12's. May be it will restore balance in our world too.

The Mystic Number: Apart from the Greek connection, we have other reasons to say that number 12 is a mystic number. 12 is a number of repetition or cycles. We have the cycles of 12 hours. There are 12 months in a year. The total number of Zodiac signs are 12. The Mayan calendar ends in 2012. So there must be something very mystic about number 12 to have fostered so many coincidences!

Many experts believe that 12 December 2012 will open up a gateway for whatever is to happen on 21 December 2012. But all these opinions are mere speculations right now. May be there is some cosmic energy surrounding this whole 12/12/12 hype. It is also possible that the date is an amusing one and it is purely coincidental. Let us live it up and find out what actually happens!
