Toronto city officials said they are temporarily relocating city hall weddings to a local hotel due to high demand for Sunday, when the date will be 10/10/10.
Officials said 19 Sunday weddings had been booked as of Tuesday and they will be ready for more at a hotel near city hall, which will be closed Sunday, The (Toronto) Star reported Wednesday.
People with weddings booked for the date gave varying reasons for wanting the 10/10/10 date on their marriage certificates, including the luck associated with the number 10 in Chinese culture and the number's meaning in binary code.
"I am a massive nerd. I actually picked the date because it is binary code for the number 42, which is the answer to the universe," Toronto bride Amanda Clark said. The number 42 was the "Ultimate Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe and Everything" in "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams
