That date happens to work out as 6/6/06 and as a result, wedding planners in the Netherlands, are reporting a rush by people to get married that day, even though it falls on a Tuesday.
Its a trend thats popping up stateside as well.
Peter H. Gilmore, the High Priest of the Church Of Satan, says theres been an interest in Satanic wedding rituals specifically on June 6, but says the date has no special significance in the church.
As he puts it, Satanists think it is amusing that anyone would be superstitious of a number, so they delight in using this forbidden figure, whenever possible.
That means 6/6/06 weddings and other gatherings are being planned because, in Gilmores words, Satanists are realists and when one finds a cultural touchstone that can pushed like a joy buzzer, we cant resist.
