Why Is the Date 09-09-09 So Special?

September 9, 2009, or 09-09-09, is the last set of repeating, single-digit dates you're likely to see in your lifetime. The next one is on January 1, 2101 or January 1, 3001 for the real purists. And while there really isn't anything all that special about the symmetrical date, historians and numerologists say it has a powerful significance.

LiveScience.com collected the following fun facts to know and tell:--Numerologists say the number nine is associated with forgiveness, compassion and success, as well as arrogance and self-righteousness.--Sept. 9 is the 252nd day of the year. What happens when you add those numbers? 2+5+2=9 (Spooky, huh?)--In China, nine is lucky where it is associated with long life. Nine is prominently featured in architecture and royal dress, typically in the form of nine fearsome dragons. The palace complex at Beijing's Forbidden City is rumored to have been built with 9,999 rooms.--The opposite is true in Japan, where nine is a homophone for suffering. It is considered a very unlucky number, second only to the number four, which sounds like death. Many Japanese will not stay in hotel rooms or hospital rooms with the number nine.

Greek mathematician Pythagoras noted the number nine's special properties:--The sum of the two-digits resulting from nine multiplied by any other single-digit number will equal nine. So 9x3=27, and 2+7=9.--Multiply nine by any two, three or four-digit number and the sums of those will break down to nine. For example: 9x62 = 558; 5+5+8=18; 1+8=9.
