Twelve/Twelve/Twelve

It doesn’t happen all that often (every hundred years or so) but we’re coming up on an interesting date combination: December 12, 2012 or 12/12/12.

Twelve has a rich tradition. Of course there are the Twelve Days of Christmas. The Norse god Odin had Twelve sons as did Jacob of the Old Testament. There were Twelve apostles to the Christian diety Jesus. The atomic number of Magnesium is Twelve. The human body has Twelve cranial nerves. And the duodenum, the first section of the small intestine, got its name from being about Twelve finger lengths long. King Arthur of Camelot had a retinue of Twelve Knights of the Round Table. And of course there are Twelve months in a year and Twelve hours on a standard clock face.

Since Twelve is a distinct and significant number, we wanted to celebrate in its honor. In order to encourage you to acquire a duodecad of things, we’re having a special one day sale on 12/12/12 where you can get 12% off the purchase price of ANY item in the shop.

Come on down and celebrate the power and mystery of Twelve with us on 12/12/12.
