MADISON (WKOW) -- Wednesday is a once in a lifetime date. Sure, it's another set of numbers, but this will be the last triple date for almost a century, until January 1, 2101.
12/12/12 is the last day of the century when the date, month and year match. According to the Dane County Courthouse, they've issued 20 licenses for weddings on 12/12/12.
This number is an increase from the average Wednesday.
Officials at the Milwaukee County Courthouse also expect the hallways to be bustling with brides and grooms. At least 27 couples are getting hitched on the 12th day of the 12th month of 2012, compared with about six on a typical Wednesday.
12/12/12 also marks Aaron Rodgers Day. Earlier this year, the state Legislature designed the day Aaron Rodgers Day in honor of the Super Bowl winner and last year's MVP. Some public and private businesses are encouraging their employees to wear Rodgers jerseys Wednesday.
Also, on 12/12/12 will be the benefit concert for Hurricane Sandy victims. Organizers say the concert will potentially reach as many people as the Super Bowl, the Oscars and the Grammy's. Organizers say the concert will be available to nearly 2 billion people in more than 190 countries via TV, radio channels, movie theaters and digital streaming feeds.
Hallmark Movie Channel, Time Warner, Sundance Channel and AMC Networks are a few of the cable networks that will carry the concert. To find out where to watch it, click on this link.
