Bodacious Bonza Bottler Day

Sunday, October 10, 2010, is one of the three remaining "Bodacious Bonza Bottler Days" we will see in our life time, and so it is fitting that I should do a special, albeit short, blog post about it. Bonza Bottler Day is when the number of the month and the day of the month are the same — for instance January 1 (1-1), February 2 (2-2), and so on. February 2, Groundhog Day in the USA, gives the monthly holiday its mascot and logo. If you want to know more about the history and purpose of the holiday, you can read more on the official website. A Bodacious Bonza Bottler Day is when the number of the month, day, and year are the same. Tomorrow is 10-10-10, next year November 11 will be 11-11-11, and then in 2012, December 12 will be the final Bodacious Bottler Day of this century. Since my lifetime friend Scott will be 59 on that day, I hope it will be a great celebration for him and his family. (Start planning, Cathy!)

If you do anything special to celebrate on 10-10-10, please let us know in the comments.

    I read in the news that couples were rushing to get married on this day (it would be a “perfect 10” I guess)…didn’t get caught up in the rush, fortunately :p

    Rob adds: That’s interesting, AJ. It’s undoubtedly best that you didn’t get all caught up in the rush. Take your time and find THE ONE. 😉

    Seeing that my wife is now full term plus 2 days with our 4th child, I have requested that she deliver on Sunday, if at all possible. While every child struggles with a variety of challenges, having the simplest birth date possible — 10-10-10 (or 2-2-2) if one converts the binary — would be a relief for all involved.

    Rob adds: Michael, you seem to think of everything! Please let me know when your baby arrives safely. If your wife wants to hold off till my 60th birthday, it’s in only 356 more days.

    For the geeks out there, it is also being hailed as Digital day, being 101010, which also happens to equal 42.

    Rob adds: Merci, Guillaume! That makes it even more interesting! As a junior higher, I was intrigued with base two.

    A good friend of mine is getting married that day. He says it will be easy to remember in the future.

    Rob adds: His wife will appreciate his remembering their anniversary, that’s for sure. 😀

    Right now, a dear, sweet friend is in labor, hopefully to deliver her first son soon. I’d kill to have video of her husband pacing the halls….

    As for getting married, my aunt’s brother and his wife were married on 7/7/07 for the express purpose of creating an unforgettable anniversary.

    Rob adds: Did the baby arrive on 10-10-10?

    We are a small church and ministry, but we start our service with singing favorites. So, at 10:10 am we sang number 10 in our book. 🙂

    Just for fun and so we’d remember it a little better.

    Rob adds: How bodacious! 😀

    I’m a pastor of a small church in California. We share a building with a Methodist church for our Sunday meetings, so we have to be out of their building by 10:10 a.m. So, this past Sunday, we finished our morning worship service at 10:10 a.m. on 10-10-10!

    Rob adds: I wonder, worldwide, how many things happened on purpose at 10:10 yesterday morning … or evening. I quietly left my Sunday School class at 10:10 (as usual) to go to the choir room to warm up for the morning service. And I didn’t even think about the fact that it was 10:10 on 10-10-10!

    Alas, the baby did not arrive on the day desired. We are now hoping for 10 20 10 as an alternate. (Given the constraints of the human gestational cycle, waiting for another 300+ days is more trouble than it would appear to be worth.) However, if she should arrive on the 21st, it would correspond with my mother’s 70th birthday. We shall simply wait and see.

    Rob adds: I’m eagerly waiting to here when mom and baby are both safely on the other side of delivery, no matter when it happens. Please let us know, Michel.
