TODAY is the 12th day of the 12th month, 2012.

And given there is no 13th month we won't see another date like this for about 90 years.

The date 12/12/12 won't roll around again until December 12, 2112.

That means today is a great excuse for a party, however you look at it.

And that's exactly what Kingaroy couple Len Davey and Sharon McLeod intend to do.

Because today after 12 years together, they tied the knot.

The couple joked last year they should get married on 12/12/12 after everyone lined up to get married on 11/11/11.

"It was a bit of a joke at first," the groom said.

"But we decided to run with it."

And run with it they did, getting married on 12/12/12 at 12pm after 12 years together.

"We told the celebrant we wanted everything done and to be announced as husband and wife at 12.12pm," Sharon said.

Although neither admits to being superstitious, they said they believed getting married on 12/12/12 would be a good omen.

The couple celebrated their love for one another at Mulanah Gardens in front of 40 guests.
