To turn 12 on 12/12/12

Wednesday is the last time most people living today will see a repeating day, month and year — 12/12/12. A mark of luck? One young man who is celebrating a milestone birthday on 12/12/12 is Wil Hiday. The Vienna, Va., boy turns 12 on Wednesday, and he planned to kick off the momentous occasion with a midnight meal at IHOP.
