12/12/12: Time for a wedding rush, a special Hurricane Sandy charity concert and one really special birthday

By Daniel S Levine,

Today is December 12, 2012 or 12/12/12, the last time many of us will see a repeated date. Happy couples are rushing to get married on the special day, while music legends are going to raise millions for Hurricane Sandy relief. Plus, one special boy is getting attention for a really unique birthday.

The Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel has 40 different packages for couples hoping to get hitched today, notes CNN. In addition to traditional and theme weddings, the church offers a selection of Elvis Presley weddings. Who wouldn’t want to spend over $1,500 to see an Elvis impersonator arrive in a pink Cadillac to sing you and your special someone three songs?

According to USA Today, Los Angeles’ county clerk’s office is staying open late and allowed people to apply for licenses online.

12-12-12 The Concert for Hurricane Sandy is tonight at New York’s Madison Square Garden, where legends like Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, The Who and The Rolling Stones will perform to raise money for victims of the superstorm. If you weren’t lucky enough to get tickets, the show will be streaming live and will air on several channels in the US. Proceeds go to the Robin Hood Relief Fund.

Kiam Moriya of Hoover, Alabama will be celebrating a really unique birthday today, reports AL.com. He was born on Dec. 12, 2000 at exactly 12:12 p.m. He will turn 12 today at 12:12 p.m. on 12/12/12.

“It's like one minute out of a whole lifetime...You know, it's all 12s,” he told AL.com. Instead of a birthday cake, he will be getting a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts arranged in the shape of the number 12.

We won’t see a repeated date like this for a century, so enjoy the day while it lasts.
