NATIONAL FOR TWELVES DAY
On National For Twelves Day (4/12), the nation will honor a magnificent number that holds significance in several ways.
We measure our days in two 12 hour sets. When we buy roses, eggs, and pastries, we purchase them by the dozen. How many months are in a year? Twelve. Of course, math lovers appreciate 12 because it has a perfect number of divisors.
Sports fans remember all the great athletes in every sport who have worn that fabulous number. For example, Terry Bradshaw, John Stockton, Jim Kelly, Dwight Howard, and Joe Namath come to mind.
And football fans wear the number to represent themselves as the 12th member of their favorite team. These vital members of the football team support players on and off the field. Especially integral to the success of the players and the teams, the celebration focuses on the fans who inspire their teams to be at their best every day.
