11-11-11-11 – The Magic Number – (I stand corrected)

Chinese numerology and Feng Shui for 2011

This year we are going to experience four unusual dates: 1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, 11/11/11.

There’s more-

Take the last two digits of the year you were born and the age you will be this year and the result will add up to 111 for

Also, October will have 5 Sundays, 5 Mondays and 5 Saturdays. This happens only once every 823 years. That would have been the year 1188 the last time. What happened that year? I’ll let you Google it :-)

Now that you have been given this earth-shattering information, you can breathe a sigh of relief.



(Thanks for the heads-up, Mom!)

    Time for me to burst your bubble:

    The 111 trick does work for anyone born in the 20th century. But all it really does is subtract 1900 from both sides of this equation: (year of birth + age this year = current year)

    2011-1900 = 111

    As for the 823 years claim, it is complete rubbish. October (or any 31-day month) will have 5 Saturdays, 5 Sundays and 5 Mondays whenever it begins on a Saturday. Previous occurrences of this pattern in October were in 1977, 1983, 1988, 1994, and 2005. It will happen next in 2016 and 2022. When you include this year, that makes 8 occurrences in less than 50 years — not once in 823. Doesn’t seem so rare all of a sudden, does it? :)

    You are right that it happened in 1188, but it’s happened dozens of times since then. :) http://www.timeanddate.com/calendar/?year=1188&country=13
