December 12, 2012 - ( 12.12.12 )

Today is a special day for all the numerologists out there, 12-12-12. This number is often associated with eggs and angry men, but recently the number and this day have been given different titles. Some people are referring to today as the "World Day of Inter-Connectedness," while happy couples have chosen to walk down the aisle and others are preparing for the supposed apocalypse. Whether you're tying the knot, getting inter-connected, or stocking up on water, we hope you make it a special day.

In local news: An early morning traffic accident on De La Vina Street caused a car to rollover, a drug dealer and gang member was arrested for methamphetamine possession, and well known Santa Barbara bloggers wrote touching tributes for our Edhat founder. Read these stories and more below:
