Today is a June 6, 2006 - 6/6/06.
And it's a bad day for hexakosioihexekontahexaphobes.
People with hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia are fearful of anything that involves the number 666. This is different from people with Mexakosioihexekontahexaphobia, who are fearful of anything that involves undocumented workers from south of the border.
Most Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobes are Christians, since the fear of the number 666 has its genesis in the Biblical Book of Revelations.
Revelations 13:16-18 states:
Let anyone with the understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a person. Its number is six hundred and sixty-six.
Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia is more common than you might think. Prominent hexakosioihexekontahexaphobes include U.S. President Ronald Reagan.
In 1989, the former President and his wife Nancy bought a home at 666 St. Cloud Road, in the exclusive Los Angeles community of Bel Air. But before the Reagan's moved in, they changed the address to 668 St. Cloud Road.
When you're a former president you can do things like that.
Unfortunately, President Reagan's hexakosioihexekontahexaphobic attempt at revisionist history was unsuccessful. Because we all know what happened to him.
When Ronald Reagan moved into that house he was a healthy, handsome, robust former president of the United States. Then, a mere 15 years later, President Reagan was tragically cut down in the prime of life - dead at age 93.
