07/07/07 - A Lucky Day Or Just Another Day?

I actually love it when dates have these quirky little "meanings", or at least when we infuse our own meanings into them.

Today's date 07/07/07 is very spiritual and mystical in nature to many people.
Lots of people have chosen to get married today in the hopes of bringing good luck.

Seven happens to be the number associated with divine perfection.

Seven is the number of the days of God's first week, the levels of heaven, the numbers of angels and trumpets, etc.,

It also represents the number of chakras, or energy centers, in the body according to some beliefs.

There are seven virtues: Faith, Hope, Charity, Fortitude, Justice, Prudence, and Temperence

and seven deadly sins: Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Anger, Greed and Sloth

and seven dwarves: Sleepy, Happy, Bashful, Grumpy, Doc, Dopey, and Sneezy

There are the seven seas: North Atlantic, South Atlantic, North Pacific, South Pacific, Indian, Antarctic, and Arctic Oceans ..
and the seven continents

oh... and don't forget
The seven articles of the U.S. Constitution!
Article One: Legislative power
Article Two: Executive power
Article Three: Judicial power
Article Four: States' powers and limits
Article Five: Process of Amendments
Article Six: Federal power
Article Seven: Ratification

Here's what Live Science has to say in their article.

Here is more about the number 7.

Anyway.. I hope you enjoy the day !
