Today is the the 12th day of the 12th month of two thousand and twelve!
There are lots of superstitions associated with the occurrence of this “perfect number” in triplicate. Apparently the date represents a “window of possibility for an evolutionary leap”. So today is a great day to make a new resolution or to start a new venture! 12 is a special number and its repeating patterns can be seen across all cultures including Swiss: 12 hours of the day, 12 months of the year, 12 in a dozen, 12 zodiac signs, 12 apostles, and the 12 days of Christmas. It also represents the closing of a chapter, and the beginning of a new era. It doesn’t work for everything though – to make the famous Ricola sweets the Swiss use 13 herbs!
Anyway, to celebrate 12/12/12 here are 12 photos taken in and around Zurich over the past 12 days.
