NASHVILLE -- We hit an auspicious number related landmark date this week: 12/12/12, a numerological wonder not to be repeated in our lifetimes. Since nobody seems to have attached any particular significance attached to this number sequence, why not create your own way to celebrate “Triple Twelve”?
Allow us to recommend eating. Lots and lots of eating. The holiday season is packed full of the best foods traditional Southern culture has to offer, but we often deny ourselves even one day of true indulgence because the Ghost of Bathroom Scales Future keeps giving us dirty looks. It’s a perfect time, just this one time, to recapture the tastes of past moments and to truly enjoy this moment we’re in.
On 12/12/12, spend twelve minutes being thankful for the top twelve favorites things in your life, then give yourself twelve hours to eat twelve great Southern foods you wouldn’t ordinarily allow yourself.
