10-10-10

10/10/10 is a special day.

A steady stream of brides and grooms exchanged vows in Toronto on Sunday, hoping their weddings would be perfect 10s on a day that comes around just once a millennium.
Couples were lining up to get married on the 10th day of the 10th month of the 10th year, or 10/10/10.
Demand at Toronto's city hall was so high, ceremonies had to be moved to a downtown hotel. Weddings were booked to take place every half-hour, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Couples from Chinese cultures said the day is considered "lucky," while followers of numerology called the day "magical."

Toronto's 23 ceremonies Sunday had nothing on Shanghai.
More than 10,000 couples exchanged vows at the city's wedding registration offices, breaking the previous record set on 09-09-09.
And people from all over the world travelled to South Korea, were 7,200 couples said "I do" in a mass ceremony.

That's not why it was special to me though.
10/10/10 is our 40th wedding anniversary.
Yup; 40 years ago today Mr. O and I said "I do"

I would do it all over again in a heart beat. Happy Anniversary Mr. O
