I hear everywhere that 12-12-12 is the last repeating date till 1,000 years ? why are people saying this?

That particular series of numbers will not come up ever again. The next time we might have the same number for the month, day, and year would be 13-13-13, but because there is no 13th month, that will not happen. Does that make sense?

It WILL come up again, just not for 100 years.
2112, we'll have 12/12/12 again.

My maths class celebrated on the time of 12:34 and 56 seconds on 7/8/90

Fun! I had a friend in college who drove me nuts by calling at "special" times.
12:34 was one of his favorites.
Star!

Because there are only 12 months. So we can't have 13/13/13.
It's the last date that will have all three (month, day, year) all be the same number.

in 2022 we will have 2-2-22 only 10 years away
in 2111 we will have 11-11-11 only 99 years away

2/2/22 is not the same three numbers. Yes, they're all 2's, but it's not 22/22/22 or 2/2/2.

And whoever said it won't happen for 1,000 years was wrong, they probably meant 100 years.

Some people say its the end of the world

Report as
Not true. It's the 21st that's supposed to be the end.
12/21/12 NOT 12/12/12.
So we get an extra nine days ;)

Actually, people said the same about 12/12/12, but it was a separate thing from 12/21/12.
Report as
So not true.

Nothing just some small minded people trying to make sense out of it, when their is no real reason to make sese out of it.

Nothing unless you are superstitious. It IS the last time therell be a triple match date like that until next century.
100 years not 1000 but there are only twelve months so there wont be a year to match the month/day until year 3001. 89 years from now. We dont have a 13th month or 14th etc .

There'll be January first on 2111, so it'll be 1-1-111 in 88 years. The thousand years fact is something that a lazy person came up with. Humans just like coincidences and patterns.
