Happy 11/11! Let’s Make Some Wishes


Today is 11/11, which was a golden day last year being 11/11/11. But you know what? I like chance and serendipity and all that jazz, so let’s celebrate 11/11/12 because it’s still cool. And at 11:11 am and 11:11 pm, you can make some super wishes.

Maybe you don’t buy into the numerology, but repeating numbers is the bees knees in astrology and cosmic what have you. It’s mysterious. I’ve been doling out wishes on 11:11 and 11/11 since I can remember. Why? Because it was a thing when I was a kid, but it stuck because good fortune seems to follow. No one really seems to know the origin, not even Wikipedia. So that’s even more mysterious.

So whether you believe in it or not, take some time to have a good day today! Make a wish on 11:11 11/11/12. Do a good deed and jack up your karma levels. Send someone a nice text message. Tell someone you miss them. Just have a happy day!

And always remember to keep what you wish for to yourself.

Do you make wishes on 11:11 or 11/11? What about other repeat numbers?
