12-12-12: Americans finding dozens of ways to mark day
For Green Bay Packers fans, Wednesday's date also will carry special meaning.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers wears No. 12, and the Wisconsin state Legislature has designated the day Aaron Rodgers Day in honor of the Super Bowl winner and last year's MVP. Some businesses are encouraging employees to wear Rodgers jerseys and make $12 donations to a charity fund.
According to Vicki MacKinnon, who practices numerology _ the study of the occult significance of numbers _ Wednesday's date represents two energies merging, including masculine and feminine energies.
MacKinnon, of Calgary, Alberta, author of "Please Take a Number: Numerology for Real Life and Everyday Success,'' said Tuesday that those kinds of energy are good news for couples planning to marry on 12-12-12.
Among them are Assistant U.S. Attorney Amy Johnson and Deputy U.S. Marshal Brian Allen. A federal judge in Pittsburgh will marry the couple at 12:12 p.m. as they exchange 12-word vows.
Johnson, 34, said the couple had been planning a small ceremony until word leaked out of their numerically unusual plans.
"A lot of people started thinking it was interesting and intriguing that we chose this day. Prior to that it was going to be a very small venture, but it's kind of spiraled into something,'' Johnson said.
