12-12-12 Perfect day for marriage

By Sapa-AFP | Dec 11, 2012 | COMMENTS [ 34 ]

Couples from Hong Kong in China and Singapore are flocking to tie the knot tomorrow (12/12/12), sparking a wedding boom on the century's last sequential dates seen as auspicious by some to guarantee a happy marriage.

Dates like 10/10/10 or 11/11/11 have traditionally seen couples from the two places rush to get married, with registrations set to surge tomorrow, which is viewed as signifying "love".

Hong Kong's marriage registry said it had received 696 notifications from couples planning to get married tomorrow.

In Singapore, which is three-fourths ethnic Chinese, 540 couples have applied to be married tomorrow.
