Special dates

Posted by redracer on October 10, 2010

On certain dates, the alignment of the date/time forms special patterns …

eg 01:02:03 on 04/05/06 and today – 10:10 on 10/10/10

These are often celebrated or hold significance, eg today a lot more people decided to get married, and in Japan I know that special commemorative bus or train tickets are issued and collected on dates like this, and some trains even run with headboards advertising the fact.

Here is my very valuable ticket as a souvenir from today 8) :lol:
