More Fun With Numerology, Constant Reader (all 2 of you)....
So today's the 8th day of the 8th month of the 8th year in this century.
As someone with a history degree, I love me some dates. I remember being horribly jealous of this guy I went to grade-high school with because his birthday was 7/7/77 and if only my parents would have waited another 2.5 months or so, that could have been MY birthday. How cool would that be? I was a kid, ok?
And then there is always 11/11/1918 at 11:11 am...
So anyway... Here's how some people are celebrating...seems kinda nerdy.
The Olympics kicks off at 8:08 pm tonight (I'm assuming local Chinese time). In Chinese, the word for 8 is similar to the word “wealth” or “fortune.” But apparently, it might not be a super-swell day in Western Numerology terms.
I was surprised by all the articles about 08/08/08 and the Olympics out there when I did a Google search.
If you want some really New Age-y stuff, check out this.
Or don't, see if I care. I think this stuff is fun, but I'd never position my life around the "numbers". Besides, I suck at math.
Here's some interesting background on Numerology/famous people who believed in this in case you still don't really know what I'm talking about.
Annnnnd...one more for you 8 symbologists out there.
