December, 12, 2012, or 12/12/12, will be the last date of its kind – when all three numerals in a date are the same – for the next 88 years. The next time this will happen is on January 1, 2101, or 01/01/01.
Although there are many notable twelves, one of the most famous (and festive!) is the Twelve Days of Christmas. To celebrate the holiday season, and to commemorate this cosmic event, I've decided to start a small lettering project. For the next 12 days leading up to Christmas, I will be lettering the lyrics to the Twelve Days of Christmas, and posting the results on Instagram and Twitter. If you're not already following me, please join in the fun! You can find me at:
Watch for the first installment tomorrow!
