Followers of the site will know how much I love fascinating dates and we have another coming up this week. This date happens just once a century, so it is unlikely that many of us will be around to see the next one!
On the 10th second of the tenth minute of the tenth hour on the tenth day of the tenth month in the year 2010 the date will be:
(That’s the 10th October 2010)
But I am not alone. There are plenty of other people equally fascinated by dates and this particular date has led to a flurry of international activity. I will mention just two events which will be happening on the 10.10.10.
Firstly, celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of the children’s book, The Weirdstone of Brisingamen by Alan Garner. This is one of the best books written for the 9-11 age group. There will be special events at a weekend festival on Alderley Edge. If you haven’t read it and you like books about legends, then I highly recommend it.
Secondly, is your chance to document the World’s Story. On October 10, 2010 (10.10.10), across the planet, documentary filmmakers, students, and inspired citizens will record the human experience over a 24-hour period and contribute their voice to the largest participatory media event in history. This is known as ONE DAY ON EARTH.
