12-12-12 perfect day to pop the question

December 12, 2012 — December 12, 2012, was the most auspicious time for a proposal for Steve Winger and Weather Network fan Crystal Hardt.

When Steve Winger decided to propose to girlfriend and Weather Network fan Crystal Hardt, only Wednesday, December 12, 2012 would do.

Also known as 12-12-12, this trick of the calendar won't come around for another hundred years.

With so many 12s, a number which Crystal and Steve say has been central to their relationship, it was like the stars were telling them to tie the knot.

So when Steve decided for sure that Crystal was the one, he enlisted The Weather Network to be there when he got down on one knee outside their Ancaster home.

He wasn't taking any chances either: He tossed in a couple extra 12s for good measure by timing his proposal for 12:12 p.m. in the afternoon.

Check out the video we shot for the payoff.

12-12-12 isn't just personal -- tune into The Weather Network this evening as Natalie Thomas speaks with famed numerology expert Marishka about why the triple-twelve combo is a winner.
