Looking for a memorable date to pop the question or tie the knot? How about 2/22/22, which happens to be a true Twosday because it falls — you guessed it — on a Tuesday. It's the only time this phenomenal convergence of days and dates will occur during our lifetimes.
What's more, the number 2 is teeming with romantic symbolism. It is generally associated with harmony, kinship, cooperation, balance, consideration, trust, faith and love.
Dates with unique patterns and palindromes (a sequence that reads the same way backward and forward) have always been winners with romantic couples.
Las Vegas CBS-affiliated television station KLAS reported that 4,492 marriages were performed in Clark County on 7/07/07, making it the most popular Vegas wedding date of all time. Second on the all-time list was 11/11/11, when 3,125 couples tied the knot in that county. The most popular 2020 date was 10/10/20. The reporters at KLAS are betting that Twosday could very well top them all.
Looking forward 200 years, you may be wondering whether February 22, 2222 might be the ultimate Twosday. Well, it's not. That date, sadly, falls on a Friday.
Twosomes who decide to hop on the Twosday train might consider scheduling their proposals or wedding vows to take place at exactly 2:22 pm or 10:22 pm (22:22 pm military time). They can even make it more special by waiting an extra 22 seconds to make it a perfect 2:22:22 or 22:22:22 on 2/22/22.
If 2/22/22 isn't your cup of tea, there are other popular engagement dates still on the board for 2022.
WeddingWire’s 2021 Newlywed Report, revealed that Valentine’s Day (February 14) is now the most popular day of the year to get engaged. Since Cupid's Day falls on a Monday in 2022, we anticipate that the prior weekend (Saturday and Sunday, February 12-13) will be buzzing with proposals.
The Fourth of July (Independence Day) is also a very popular date, according to WeddingWire's 2021 survey. It ranked #5, just after New Year's Day (#2), Christmas Day (#3) and Christmas Eve (#4).
