What does a day mean to you?
Most people will probably answer that a day may just be another ordinary day. But if the question is "what does 11-11-11 (November 11, 2011) mean to you?", many will say that it's a special day to them.
It's human nature to try to differentiate oneself from others for the sake of creating a self identity. This includes picking a memorable date such as 11-11-11 for a huge event of one's life.
Media reported that on that specific date there had been a significant increase of the number of weddings held and babies born. Somehow I haven't heard any news about someone choose to die or get divorced on that date...
Actually I was not a keen follower of such frenzy. I always think that if we want to consider an event to be important and memorable, then it will speak for itself. However a movie ad saying it will be shown for the first time in the cinema on 11-11-11 caught my attention and I thought, "Hey, I haven't gone to movies for a long time with my husband, so why don't he and I just go?"
Despite the poor review, we went to watch the movie anyway. Here's the memento:
So now, if one asks me "What did you do on 11-11-11?", I will simply say, "I went to the movie with my husband."
Like it's important *grin
