      Listmates,

      Perhaps there is indeed something to the 07-07-07 phenomenon after
      all....

      I received an email this evening from a friend whose son's birthday was
      some 2 weeks ago. However, due to the various schedules of his extended
      family members, he has been trying to co-ordinate a date where everyone
      could get together to celebrate, and only now has been able to set the
      date for Saturday, 07-07-07.

      This would mean nothing, of course, if it weren't for the fact that
      it's his son's SEVENTH birthday.......

        Lucky in Love? Couples Book 7/7/07 Weddings
        Reservations Are Up For Auspicious Day

        By Kendra Marr
        Washington Post Staff Writer
        Saturday, June 30, 2007; Page A01

        It's unclear whether July 7, 2007, will be the luckiest wedding day
        of the century, but it will certainly be one of the busiest this
        year.

        Hotels, wedding planners, caterers, florists and bakers are
        scrambling to accommodate the flood of couples rushing to the altar
        on 7/7/07. They're juggling more events than usual. Some are hiring
        extra help. Old hands say the crush will exceed the number of
        millennium marriages or those celebrated on a typical Valentine's
        Day.

        There are no official numbers for this day. But one indicator is
        TheKnot.com, a popular wedding Web site. More than 38,000 couples in
        TheKnot.com's registry are planning to wed next Saturday -- more
        than triple the average number of couples that signed up to marry on
        Saturdays in July 2006, said Christa Vagnozzi, a senior editor.

        The date is popular for many reasons, as seven is considered an
        auspicious number in a variety of cultures.

        "It's a little extra luck for a happy, long marriage. Any little bit
        helps," said Deepak Baskaran, 30, of Baltimore, who will be getting
        married next Saturday in the District. "Plus I'll never forget that
        anniversary date, or I'll be in big trouble."

        In the Orthodox Jewish tradition, the bride circles the groom seven
        times when she arrives at the chuppah, a canopy used in weddings,
        symbolizing in part the seven days of creation. Seven candles are
        lit during Kwanzaa. There are seven wonders of the world. The Big
        Dipper is formed from seven stars. Buddha is said to have walked
        seven steps upon his birth. The Islamic tradition involves seven
        levels of heaven. The ancient city of Rome was said to be built on
        seven hills. There are seven deadly sins, as well as virtues, in
        some Christian traditions. And gamblers hit the jackpot with the
        slot machine combination 7-7-7.

        Triple sevens simply amplify the numerological meaning for those
        tying the knot.

        Brides and grooms snatched up wedding venues more than a year in
        advance. Richard Markel, director of the Association for Wedding
        Professionals International, did a survey of 2,000 hotels and
        wedding facilities and discovered that 75 percent were already
        reserved by December for 7/7/07.

        "The good news is that nobody raised their prices," Markel
        said. "They really didn't expect it."

        One wedding planner managed to persuade a bride to get married seven
        minutes after midnight when she couldn't book the triple sevens.

        "There were a lot of brides who actually started looking to buy the
        date from other brides," Markel said.

        Las Vegas, the land of economical and impromptu weddings, is
        particularly hectic. Travel Web site Vegas.com is booking about six
        times as many hotel rooms as normal for that weekend. Some hotels
        and casinos are touting "lucky" deals, such as a chance to win a
        $777 meal and a mass wedding at 7 p.m.

                well i for one would like to take this opportunity to wish every one an asymmetrical
                07/06/07.

                kind of like those arabic carpets that make sure the symmetry is never perfect -- they
                don't want to compete with the perfection of their deity.

                my whisky infused state assures me such belief is far fetched.

                but i like the asymmetry.

                goes with my apolitics.

                well, here's to you, my friends. on the eve of a poker-perfect day.

                Chris
