FOR most people today will just be another day in 2012.

But for others, it will be a day unlike any other.

Today is the 12/12/12.

This is the last time a triple date sequence like this will occur this century.

Astrologists have spruiked dialogues, among others, about planets aligning and causing all kinds of technological glitches and malfunctions.

The 120-year-old Astronomical Society of the Pacific has titled the day Anti-Doomsday Day, encouraging people to forego the supposed end of the world on December 21, 2012 and to go in the opposite direction in celebration of rational thinking and reasoned discourse.

But for Toowoomba woman Suzanne Van Bael it is one of the biggest celebrations of her young life - her 21st birthday.

"I'm not superstitious, but I still think it's pretty cool," Ms Van Bael said when asked if she thought the day would bring anything special apart from another notch on her life's belt.

"I also think my desk is going to be completely trashed by my workmates with confetti, streamers and balloons when I get to work."

As for Toowoomba couple Grant Miller and Cheryl McPaul, there is no way they will forget today's date.

The two will be getting married today at Picnic Point at 12pm.
