(CBS News) It happens this week . . . Tuesday, to be exact: November 12th, 2013, or to put it digitally, 11/12/13.

Various news reports these past several days suggest that the world will see a surge of weddings on Tuesday, in the apparent belief that it's good luck to tie the knot on a consecutively-numbered date.

Further fueling this rush apparently is the knowledge that this is going to be the next-to-last date for doing so in this century.

After December 13, 2014, the next consecutively-numbered date won't roll around until January 2, 2103.

At the altar it should be quite a scene,
On Tuesday, 11/12/13.
Couples who feel they can no longer wait,
Are vowing to marry on that date.
As for what time to do it, with precision I mean,
try 8:09:10 on 11/12/13!
