1 Nov

Here in Sydney, Australia, we write today’s date as 1/11/11.

What a rare event! Will it ever be again, in any current reader’s lifetime?

9, 10, 11!

9 Oct

Today is the ninth of October, twenty-eleven.

Here in Australia we abbreviate it to 9/10/11.

So, ‘Down Under’, this is a rather special date!

Next year, we’ll have another: 10/11/12: after that comes 11/12/13, but after that, we number lovers will have too long to wait!

Happy Consecutive Numbers’ Day!

P.S. Will this rare event ever be widely celebrated?
