Let's Choose a 2013 WHDate

For 5 years we have celebrated World Hoop Day on very special tri-numeral dates.  Starting with 7/7/7 and continuing through to 12/12/12, the magic of numbers has spun a portal to another world.  A real world, made possible by every one of you.  Since the beginning, people have come up to me and asked me what about 2013?  You have also been getting that question and don’t know what to say.  Well, it’s time to decide together.

For the next week, I am asking you to submit your ideal date choice for 2013 and beyond.  Think globally.  Spring and Fall are equally pleasant seasons and opposite on either side of the globe.  While summer may be a great time to hoop outside, it’s only fabulous in one hemisphere.  Some suggestions I have already been given are 3.14 for Pi.  Also, I’ve been asked to make it 1/3/13 and 1/4/14 and so on.  Others have suggested two WHDays a year, summer for both sides of the planet.  Still more suggestions are the 2nd Saturday of one month and 1/13/13 and then 2/14/14.

Think about it, but don’t think too much and send me your ideas.  By 11/21/12, we will tally the top five suggestions and have a vote.  The final dates will be revealed on 12/12/11.  Yes I love numbers and there is a reason a circle is infinitely 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288….

UPDATE: Thank you all for your thoughtful submissions! We are preparing for the final voting process and will keep you posted.

    I think the dates for future world hoop days should be days that can add up to the year like 6/6/12 and 6/7/13. This would be a stable thing that would work till about 2024 if it wanted to!

  2. I like the idea of … 1/3/13 and 1/4/14 and so on. Others have suggested two WHDays a year, summer for both sides of the planet. Still more suggestions are the 2nd Saturday of one month and 1/13/13 and then 2/14/14.

    Hope this is not too late. Jan.

    I already said this on the facebook page, but I strongly oppose pattern dates. If we want to create a cultural phenomenon that transcends years and countries, moving the date around is not in our best interest. And, I suggested 8/8. Lots of hoops there. 🙂
