travel days of the year.

Public & School Holidays , Christmas , New Year’s Eve etc. There are certain dates on the calendar when travelers know that hotel rooms in prime vacation spots will be nearly impossible to come by, even if they try to book months in advance.

This year, add another day to the list: Saturday, 7th July.

That’s because that date — the almost numerically perfect 7/7/07 — is being sought after by couples around the country as the ideal day for a wedding.And it isn’t only prospective spouses who think that the 7-7-7 combination could be lucky for them.The number of Knot magazine members who registered wedding plans for July 7 jumped to 31000, almost three times the number for a typical Saturday in July, a figure that is roughly triple the number for any other Saturday that month — and nearly 20,000 more than the number of couples who got married on the corresponding weekend a year earlier.

The number 7 has held a special significance at least from the time of the ancient Babylonians, who revered the seven sacred planets, and it is a crucial numeral in the Bible, as in the seven days of the Creation to the seven petitions of the Lord’s Prayer. Evie Bagwell, 23, and Derek Novotny, 22, from Brownsville, Pa., say they chose the date for their wedding because of its spiritual significance. “The Bible explains 777 as being perfection, and that is how we feel together,” Ms. Bagwell said.
