Remember last year when I celebrated THIS date? Well, today I'm celebrating another one of the world's rare calendrical anomalies known as 09.09.09. So what's so special about this date? Well, if you're a number nerd like me, you'd know it represents the last set of repeating, single-digit dates that we'll see for almost a century (until January 1, 2101). Though technically there's nothing special about the symmetrical date, I find it interesting that September 9th also happens to be the 252nd day of the year (2+5+2=9). You've got to admit, that's kind of cool.
Need another reason to like the number 9? Did you know that the sum of the two-digits resulting from nine multiplied by any other single-digit number will equal nine? Check it out: 9x5=45 and 4+5=9.
Multiply nine by any other two, three, or four-digit number and the sums of those will also break down to nine. Example: 9x31=279 and 2+7+9=18 and 1+8=9. I'm loving the number 9. Hope you all enjoy today's calendrical anomaly!
