Sauk Rapids boy turns 12 at 12:12 pm on 12/12/12


It's a very special day for a Sauk Rapids boy who's celebrating his golden birthday on this once-a-century date.

According to the St. Cloud Times, Bristian Phrachomphonh is turning 12 years old on the 12th day of the 12th month of the 12th year of this century. And what's even more interesting is that 12 years ago, Phrachomphonh was born at 12:12 p.m.

Today will be the last triple date for almost a century--until January 1, 2101.

Numerologists say Wednesday's date represents two energies merging--that's why many are rushing to the chapel to get married. (And an easy-to-remember anniversary is always helpful).
