January 11, 2011 may not hold much significance for the future, but the date is significant for at least one Denver couple and one Iowa couple, as they saw their babies born at exactly 1:11, according to media reports.
Parker Adventist Hospital in Colorado told the Denver Post that newborn Annie Allen, daughter of Jocelyn and Tyson Allen, was delivered at 1:11 p.m.
In Ames, Iowa, another baby was born 12 hours earlier at 1:11 a.m., according to TV station KCCI-8 in Des Moines. The newborn, Aila, was born to Elizabeth and Anel Crncevic.
The report said the birth was not planned at all, and the mother had to be induced on Monday.
Several months ago, October 10, 2010, was a hit day for marriages with thousands of couples across the world tying the knot on the day.
According to the Washington Post, possibly the most important thing that happened this Jan. 11 was the announcement of the Verizon-based iPhone. The newspaper also reported that teenager folklore says kissing a clock at 11:11 a.m. brings good luck.
If the date turns into Jan. 12 and you've found your luck about the same, fret not: there's always Nov. 11 later this year, or 11/11/11!
