Your 8/8/08 Story

By

I you believe that the number 8 is lucky, you should not let this once in a lifetime opportunity to make 8/8/08 a memorable milestone in your life! Since this is once in a lifetime, you should plan waaay in advance or else other people will reserve this date ahead of you.

Here are top 10 ideas on what you should do on August 8, 2008, Friday:
1. Book your wedding now for those planning to get married in 2008, the year of the Rat! I’m sure all the churches and restaurant venues will be booked way in advance.
2. Plan to give birth on this day so Nov should be the love month for you. If your son is born on this day, you can call him lucky eight 🙂
3. Since this falls on a friday, schedule your dream vacation during this time to mark this milestone.
4. Earn my first $1,000,000 in the internet (this is my personal goal on 8/8/08)
5. Buy a lotto ticket, raffle tickets or join any contest on this day and prove to yourself if this is indeed a lucky day.
6. If you are thinking of resigning from your work and moving on with the new phase of your career, why not do it on this day to make a statement. Make this your liberation day or the day you get out of the rat race.
7. Plan a 8/8/08 consumer promotion for your company.
8. If I were the president, I would make this a special non working holiday! We have time to lobby to make this a special non-working holiday. Lets start an email petition for this 🙂
9. Watch the opening of Beijing Olympics! It is scheduled from aug. 8 to 24, 2008.
10. Collect 8/8/08 memorabilia — all the news papers, magazines, memos, etc. including the opening memorabilia of the beijing olympics.

So what will you do on August 8, 2008? Let me know in the comments…

  1. haha.. oo nga naman pano ang 07-07-07.. lucky seven din hehe..
    anyway, sa 08-08-08 wala pa ako balak pero hopefully travel yan 🙂 i-set ko talaga since na friday pala yan. ayus long weekend diba 😉

  2. since i’ve been planning to go and see the olympics, that’s probably what i’ll do. i just hope there are still available accommodations. 😀

  3. My daughter’s birthday is 07/07 and we let the day pass last year (07) without fuss. Was she particularly lucky that time last year? I don’t remember any windfall. haha
    But anyway, by 8.08 am on 8/8/88, I should at least try to be up and about, and cheerful and hopeful, and thankful for lotsa things.
    Found this site from the bloggers nominees list. Thought I’d check out the competition. hahaha Seriously, I am no competition — all you have to do is check out my place to find out how safe i am. haha But you … you got good chances. Good luck.

  4. Oooops. 07-07-07 is still to happen. (So that’s why we didnt notice) Sorry for the boo-boo but not really sorry that we still have a chance to mark daughter’s 777 in a special way.
    TY Anton.

  5. Yikes! Kelangan ko na ng boyfriend para pwede ako makasal ng 080808=P
    Hmm…if you ‘plan’ to give birth on that date, kelan dapat magsex?=P

  6. I’m planning on opening my clothing boutique on 08-08-08. #8 has been my favorite/lucky number since I was a little girl. So, this date has significance to me.

  7. This is My sons 8th Bday 08/08/08
    Lucky Day for him.We will be having a huge Bday party for him! I think this year is his blessed year!

  8. I will be 28 on the o8 /o8 /o8 .I also turned 8 on the 8/8/88 . I’m thinking of having an ‘8’ themed party where everyone has to come dressed as something that represents the number 8 .

  9. Born the 8th hr of 8th day of 8th month of 64 – do the math 44 this year 4+4? Am I lucky??? Providing one does not equate riches with luck, I am in my mind quite lucky – for many the things in my life as I am sure we all are. But I do feel it is a powerful number, even more so when tipped over onto it’s side.

  10. My birthday is 8/8 as well as my brother. He was born in 73, and I in 75, but he was born at 7:21 in the morning and I was born at 3:29 in the afternoon…8 hours and 8 minutes apart! 8/8/08 will be a crazy day for both of us! 8 has always been our lucky year…plus, I turn 33 and if you turn it around, it forms an 8, and my brother will be 35 and if you add those up it =8! Crazy 8’s!!! The lottery is mine that day!

  11. I want to know more abot this date and good reasons why I should tie the knot on this day ! thanks !
    is 1972 the year of the rat? 2008? 8-8-08 is a good day to et married?

  12. My twin daughters will be 8 on 8-8-08 and they also were born in the 8th hour of the 8th day in the 8th month. They will be spending the day at Walt Disney World, a magical birthday!

  13. My birthday is 8/8/1994 so does that mean i’ll be lucky because i know 8 is a lucky number in chinese because Ba (the pronunciation for 8) rhymes with Fa ( the word for prosperity)

  14. A month or two ago, something weird appeared on the tv screen ( I beleive it was on Fox or maybe NBC ).
    On the screen appeared the date 08-08-08 in big black numbers. I thought it was very odd and since then I’ve been wondering what this date meant .
    What terrible event will happen on August 8th, 2008 ?
    Is that when Bush attacks Iran ?
    Is that when Obama gets assasinated ?
    I have feeling that that date popped-up on the tube for a reason , and knowing that the major news network are controlled by the elites and the elites run the world, I would bet something awful will happen on that day .

  15. worried named viewer….please do not create ‘mind games’ on a beautiful happy awesome picturesque sceneries that gives us all viewers some happiness something to look forward to have fun and enjoy life thru the lives of simple filipinos lifestyles activities so why are YOU RUINING it for the happy awesome world it is creating to benefit you and the rest of the world
    PLEASE DO NOT WORRY coz ‘nothing’ NEW will happened except the one that’s playing with your TELEVISION SET and that is common high tech problems american president bush knew that more international wars in full scale is not a positive help for future political-economic career for him and america people are much more happier now after those unpopular bush chaotic agendas in the past PLEASE DO NOT PUT UNNECESSARY PANIC MODE ON names your mentioned coz it doesnt inspire the world to hear negative ‘speculations’ we will all LOVE pres. bush more if he doesnt buy your ideas in internet website we want a happy entertaining world not chaotic so please refrain from throwing that kind of thoughts but give us your FUN o happy experiences in the past we want to hear your unique traits lol.

  16. ….WORRIED named viewer the ‘names’ you ‘mentioned’ are countries-citizens WHO are members of UNITED NATIONS located in u.s. and has a GENEVA,SWITZERLAND headquarters..if you are that worried and believe such thing might happened ‘PLEASE’ feel free to contact ‘united nations’ headquarters in u.s. or geneva coz that is what we normally do meaning we ‘USE’ the system that calls for it and asked them to help you fix your concerns-worries coz they’re ‘not funny’ instead HELP us help the WORLD in solving-preventing issues like what youre worried about by calling-telling-going to the right places-people ‘not’ in an lifestyles family TRAVEL- ENTERTAINMENT informative colorful fun internet section and GOOD LUCK for caring i believe you should GO TO TRADE-COMMERCE or LAW ENFORCEMENT agencies or the U.N. officers in charge since T.V.sets are high tech problems and names you mentioned are their member countries not to some children reading this picnic travel culture sites you dont want them crying from what they read-hear from you lol.

    We Request the ‘Moment of Peace Project’ on 08/08/08 at 08:08 a.m.
    Chicago, IL-The Foundation of Peace Community Project immediately requests your participation in “The Moment of Peace Project” scheduled for 08/08/08 at 08:08 a.m. Please start planning your Moment of Peace Project now!
    “What if we could stop all conflict in the world for just one moment,” asked event organizer, Irina Lyubashevsky. “Would that moment have the possibility to lead to another moment of no conflict – of peace? I believe it can. Peace is not something that we need to fight for. Peace is something we need to create together.”
    I request that you participate in the Moment of Peace project. It’s easy and anyone and everyone can do it. Just observe a moment of peace on 08/08/08 at 08:08 a.m. in your time zone – wherever you are – with whoever you are with. You are also free to create your own Moment of Peace event or party wherever you want; e.g. your places of worship, public parks, work, coffee houses, health clubs, etc. Virtually anywhere you want peace.
    “If the world could just stop for one moment of universal peace, we can create peace together. Together we can watch a wave of peace wash over our Earth,” Lyubashevsky added.
    Please register with us (a friend request) at http://www.myspace.com/thefoundationofpeace and share how you are organizing your Moment of Peace Event so others may attend and be inspired to host their own event. We’re going to be tracking this project as it goes global.

  41. My aunt will be 88 on 8/8/08 (what a birthday)wish I could let the organisers of the olympics know.She is a very lucky and healthy lady.

  42. 888 is the value of the name Jesus (in Gematria – converting letters of His name to their numeric value in Greek). Many are seeking peace on this date, or a new beginning (symbolic meaning of 8 from the Bible). The number 888 is the true Bible Code. It is found in all the major prophecies of the coming Messiah in the Hebrew Tanach – and supernaturally links to the Greek New Testament which followed it by hundreds of years. The number 888 is even found at the Temple Mount (The House + Mt. Moriah = 417 + 471 = 888). It is no coicidence that the whole world is focused on that single place in the world that the three monothesitic religions meet…The House on Mount Moriah is Jesus! See http://www.888messiah.com/.

  43. My 28th is on 8-8-08. I was born 8-8-80 and I turned 8 years old on 08-08-88. Happy birthday to all of us 8 babies. And its a Friday…it’s going to be an awesome day!!!

  44. I will be 38 on 8/8/08 born in 1970 at 1:28pm. I want to say Happy Birthday to all who will be celebrating that special day with me. Much Love!

  45. Here are some party ideas for 8-8-08. When I sent out emails about the party, I use 8’s as much as I can. Example: It’s a 8-8-08 celebr8tion! Get ready to celebr8! Don’t be l8; It’d be gr8 if you can particip8 I can’t w8, 8cetera. Words like navig8, negoti8, calcul8. You get the idea.
    Make a pair of “8” earrings. Get a strand of little beads from crafts stores such as Michael’s, shape it into the 8 shape and tie it to earring posts. Wear it for your party.
    Make a “8” shape cake. Use a tube pan (not bundt pan), make a chiffon cake or angel food cake. Cut the cake in half horizontally. Put the smaller half for the top of the 8 and the larger half for the bottom of the 8. Frost it with whipped cream and decorate it with fresh fruits such as sliced strawberries, canned peaches, blueberries, and/or sliced kiwi.
    Have a raffle drawing at your party at 8:08p.m. The prize could be a gift card from Target for $8.08.
    Be cre8tive! If anybody has any other ideas, please don’t hesit8 to share them.

  46. It may as well be Friday the 13th, I have to tell you all this in the hopes that it won’t happen. That this can be a very lucky day for all, but it won’t be. But a while back I had a dream, this was back in like April or May this year ’08. In this dream my whole town was sent to parking garages, I went with some folks from work, and word started spreading this was the end of the world. When all of a sudden the dinosaur T-Rex walked by. I know this sounds crazy but hear me out. We, in the parking garage, were all amazed. Some people even chased after him. Now to make this all even crazier, my sister will be setting up for the race for the cure that day in a parking garage which I have helped with the last two years, and actually planned on having some co-workers there that day. After reading this I don’t know if this is good or bad, but a little while after this dream I stepped down from my position, which many of you are talking about doing that day, kind of scaring me more. So T-Rex is going to make an appearance that day I have a feeling, just not as a dinosaur, mabe a nickname for something terrible. I don’t know, but with all you having a b-day that day, I wish you all the best of luck. Plan for something amazing, it won’t be the end of the world, although I never saw the next day in my dream, I just know it won’t. But it may just start the end. If you all haven’t heard of all the termoil that is going on over the olypmics, including todays article on SI.com, it scares me. And may I also say that I am a bit of a profit. I haven’t predicted anything major, just a few minor things that have prevented injury, a couple ambulances driving by, me not hitting a dog on the road, and this isn’t really a profit thing, but I have had a fog come over my windshield while driving over a railroad in the form of somebody breathing on it. I am freaked out over this day. I just pray that nothing happens.

  47. It’s my birthday at: 08/08/08
    I will be 62 that day (6+2=8)
    My House # contains 2 x 8
    My Phone # ” 2 x 8
    My social Ins.#” 3 x 8
    If that doesn’t mean luck, what does?
    I will do some specific activities you suggest above that day.
    Looking forward to it.
    Can only get better.

  48. I will be turning 25 on 08-08-08 and I will be playing bingo hoping that I will win a jackpot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  49. Continue -My grandfather, Ted Smart of Xenia, Ohio (which has 88 counties) will be turning 80 on 08-08-08, celebrating with his loving and proud family which includes his 8 grandchildren.Happy birthday Grandpa, we love you!!!

  50. Last May, I wrote a 20 page story titled Final Fate which is centered around 8-8-08. This day is symbolic for a very significant day in time, as the three 8’s represent three infinity loops (8-8-8). I plan to spend this entire day at a barren beach in complete isolation from mankind. I want to reserve his day as a time for deep introspection, and most importantly, a day to identify my absolute purpose on this earth. I want to talk to God and let him speak to me in a way I’ve never experienced before, and I want to find inside myself the voice of reason.

  51. My daughter will be 8 on 8/8/08 and we are having a big party with food,games and a DJ!! Happy Golden birthday Isabel!!

  52. It is my birthday also on 8/8/08. I will be 43. I was born at 11:15 pm in Reno. I think I will buy a lottery ticket. I took a vacation from work so its already going to be a great day.

  53. today i am of 29 .. 8-8-8 is my bd and iam feeling some special as it 8-8 is not so common that people remeber it but another 8 make it awesome….

  54. I am 46 today – 8-8-08. I was born on August 8, 1962. 6 + 2 add up to eight so I’ve always thought of 8 as my lucky number. I plan to buy a lottery ticket. Happy Birthday to all of you who share the same birthday!!

  55. My birthday is 08/08/78 today I turn 30 years old……….888 in Greek means Jesus. At 30 he began his ministry in Israel. He was by himself when he was baptized by John, then went into the wilderness to be tested by Satan. He overcame all three trials and came down from the mountains in power. This day only has the significance that we give it. Life is what you make it. I choose to celebrate it in thanksgiving to God for allowing me to be alive in such exciting times. They say 8 means new beginnings or wealth and fortune. This presidential election will give us the U.S.’s 44th president 4+4=8. When they announce Barack Obama it will be a new beginning for the world. Barack in hebrew means to speak prosperity or blessing. Exactly 40 years ago Martin Luther King was assainated in 1968 and he said he had a dream, now it is being mainfested through Barack Obama. It took 40 years for Moses to bring the children Of Israel through the wilderness, then Joshua another 40 years to subdue the promise land. 12 is the next phase 1+2=3.

  56. I bought my some land today for the first time. Paid cash. It’s 1000 feet from a river and 1000 feet from a lake. It is the future site of my dream house.

Not to mention the honey moon was perfect and realxing only to return safely to another rainbow seen from the airport departure area. Luc and Love was with us all the way!!!!!!!!!! 8-8-08

  59. some stupid number like that. I left him off. Also, none of these sets are mine, nor are they being sold on my behalf. I’m not associated with the sellers, nor can I help you if you have a problem with a seller. This is created solely for your convenience.
