GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -
Twelve, twelve, twelve. It's the last time in most of our lifetimes we'll see sequential dates. So some Mississippians wanted to make December 12th, 2012 a day to remember.
Harrison County Justice Court Judge Brandon Ladner said by lunch time on Wednesday, he'd already performed five wedding ceremonies.
"Doing weddings is pleasant time to spend with folks," Judge Ladner. "Probably the most pleasant time a judge can spend with somebody because this is one time that folks come to the courthouse and interact with the judge and everyone's happy. Everyone leaves happy. To have and to hold."
Among the happy newlyweds were Jeffrey and Alison Sykes of Pass Christian. Their reasons for a 12-12-12 wedding are different than most people. They wanted to become man and wife four years to the day after they became a couple.
Sykes said, "Because she is sweet, caring and she doesn't give me too much of a hard time about some of the stuff I come up with."
Family and friends celebrated as Ronnie Brown of Florence repledged his love to his wife of 25 years.
"It is a great day. We had agreed that if the Lord would bless us to see 12-12-12 that we wanted to come to the Gulf Coast," said Brown. "We wanted to renew our vows right here on the beach. God has blessed us with 25 years, and we wanted to have a renewal for ourselves and to show the world what a Godly marriage is all about."
Alicia Leggins' classmates at West Elementary School in Gulfport helped her celebrate her very distinct birthday.
"It's the 12th month. It's on the 12 day. I'm turning 12 and it's 2012," said Leggins. "It's a lot of things going on today, so today to be on my birthday is just awesome."
Leggins wasn't the only one celebrating Wednesday. So were some South Mississippi parents. Noah Miller of Escatawpa, Logan Potter of Perkinston, and Keith Barkley Jr. of Moss Point were born at Singing River Hospital. In Ocean Springs, doctors delivered Khloe Lundy of Gautier, Gunnar Scott of Vancleave and Kamden Forbes of Biloxi.
There won't be another repeat of numbers until January first of 2101.
