12/13/14 is your last chance this century to indulge in sequential date frenzy
This Saturday — 12/13/14 — is the last sequential calendar date of the century.
The Smithsonian Magazine reports that the next one doesn’t arrive until 89 years from now — Jan. 2, 2103 or 01/02/03.
This date is also favorable because it falls on Saturday, a big day for weddings.
Some 20,000 couples plan to marry in the U.S. on 12/13/14, according to a David’s Bridal poll — about 7,200 pairs wed the same weekend last year.
The December date is so popular that venues, DJs and other wedding service providers are having to turn many couples away.
But others are seeing the day as a way to cash in.
Las Vegas chapels are offering special 12/13/14 packages, including one with a price of $1,213.14.
It’s too late for December, but if you’re looking for a memorable date to get married, you’ll have to wait another two decades for Jan. 2, 2034 — or 1/2/34.
