Today is April 4, 2004; that's 04/04/04. Not so significant for us Westerners but in Japan, at least among the superstitious, it is just about Halloween. "Four" in Japanese is pronounced "shi", which is the same pronounciation for "death". So basically, today is death, death, death day. Being married, or born or pretty much anything else on this day is a bad idea here. Well, I guess dying would be ok.
So happy Death Death Death Day!
