Today is 09/09/09, and you’ve probably heard that lots of couples are getting married today, from busy Las Vegas to a mass wedding in Malaysia. Nine couples won a contest to marry at 9:09 a.m. today at checkout No. 9 at a 99 cent store in Los Angeles. (In a 99 cent wedding, of course!) The Chinese word for “nine” sounds a lot like the Chinese word for “everlasting,” so all of these couples are hoping the day holds some luck for them.
