The Number Six

As previously mentioned, the HH and I are the third generation in my family to be married on Christmas Eve. It wasn't until recently that I realized we were all married on a six year:
1926
1946
1976.
I don't do numerology but I was intrigued enough to look up what this number's 'personality' entails.
This is what I found:
Positives
Most harmonious of single digit numbers
High ideals
Intellectual Creativity
Graceful 

Negatives
Can be small minded
Can be intrusive
Can be shallow
Sees the small picture but can miss the big one
Self-righteous

In math, six is considered a perfect number.

"Six is a number perfect in itself, not because God created all things in six days; rather, the convert is true God created all things in six days because the number is perfect." Saint Augustine (The City of God)

Number rhyme:
"A curvy line and a  circle mix. That's the way to make a six."

  2. That's an amazing post. I've never thought of numbers that way, but you have certainly focused on ones that were important in your world. I have no six's in my world. But, I was certainly intrigued by yours.

  3. Strangest thing! And, very interesting!
    My favourite number is seven (7)..always
    has been, never thought any more about it.
    Unlike my birth sign..Virgo..I am a typical
    Virgo, not that l'm into that sort of thing!
    So..I think l'll give seven a little Google
    later, see what l can find out!
    At least seven rhymes with heaven...! :0).

    2. I did find this...among other meanings...
      Mostly the number seven is related to the
      Bible..and Satan..Interesting...!
      This is mostly about love...! Ah! :).

      Meaning of the Number Seven....

      Seven is the number of scholarly, mystical pursuits. If you can find a mate that enjoys the same, then you're golden. Otherwise, your love life may be best served with a good book in front of a toasty fire. You tend to be highly cerebral in relationships. You thrive in relationships that stimulate you mentally. Partnering with a molecular physicist and gabbing all night about quantum theory would be an ideal date. Okay, so maybe I'm exaggerating again. Perhaps a rousting game of trivial pursuit would be more ideal.

  4. That was most interesting Sandra,the number 10 shows up in my family, my father was born on the 10th Nov. My husband had the same birthdate. I was born 10th May also was my granddaughter. strange how numbers come up in families.

    1. 10 does show up a lot in your family, Yvonne. I wonder what the significance is behind that number?

  5. Interesting how that worked out. Although I think six is perfect because of God not the other way around.
    I just did the math and my family is all over the place with years.

    1. Our birthdays seem to be all over the place too. I was surprised about the anniversaries all ending with six.
      Have a good one, Alex.

  6. That ended up neat indeed. I wonder who makes up this crap about numbers though. Did some guy just go let's make a meaning one day and that was that? lol

  7. Very good Sandra. For some reason, years ending in one (1991 for instance) are auspicious and not in a good way.

    1. Bummer. Hope you have plenty of good numbers to offset #1.

  8. Wonderful tradition of Chirstmas Eve and marriage year ending in a 6. Has anyone else in the family kept up the tradition?

    1. No. I think it will end with us.
      Have a great one, CJ:)

  10. No patterns in our family. Except there are a lot of birthdays and anniversaries in May, but none of the years match up.

    1. I was really surprised that ours did. The bdays are all scattered.

  11. Fun to think about. Numbers and patterns can fascinate, even without full scale belief in astrology and the like. Thank you for sharing this glimpse of the number six and what it means in your life!

    1. Numbers do seem to be the building blocks of almost everything don't they, Marcie?

  12. How interesting that you all chose Christmas eves and 6 years! Do you think you would have still done it if you had realized how much of your family (2 generations) had done it before? … Or were you concerned at all about numbers when you married?

    1. I knew about the Christmas Eve tradition, but I had no idea that the years ended with six. Yes, I'd do it again:)
      Hope you have a great one:)

  13. This is fascinating. I can't remember my own number -- I'll have to do it again and look it up. I'd say that if you buy lotto tickets, you should be sure you have sixes in them!

    1. Good point on the lotto tickets, Jeanie:)

  17. I have read about numerology but I have to look it up again. I think it's pretty cool that people were married all on these dates. One has to bring the date down to a single number though so Dec 24, 1976 is actually broken down to 5:) what are the positives and negatives to this?

    1. Sounds like another research question:)

  18. Oh, 1976 is the year we were married, too!
    It's something, isn't it?

  19. This is so cool Sandra! Thanks for sharing this! My birth year has a 6 in it too! Big Hugs!
