# Why 09/09/09 Is So Special?

In Florida, at least one county clerk's office is offering a one-day wedding special for \$99.99.

Everyone from brides and grooms to movie studio execs are celebrating the upcoming calendrical anomaly in their own way.

Any grade-schooler could tell you, for example, that the sum of the two-digits resulting from nine multiplied by any other single-digit number will equal nine. So 9x3=27, and 2+7=9.

Multiply nine by any two, three or four-digit number and the sums of those will also break down to nine. For example: 9x62 = 558; 5+5+8=18; 1+8=9.

Sept. 9 also happens to be the 252nd day of the year (2 + 5 +2)...
