Schoolgirl 'very special' to celebrate 12th birthday on December 12 2012
A schoolgirl is feeling "very special" as she celebrates her 12th birthday on a numerical quirk that will not happen again for another 100 years.
Sofia Davoren, of Hendon, has talked about turning 12 on 12/12/12 since she was a young girl.
The Mill Hill County pupil said: “I’m really excited and feel very special. I’m going to go bowling with my friends to celebrate.”
Her mum, Anna Varchione said: “For years Sofia’s been talking about turning 12 on the 12/12/12. It’s a big deal.”
As well as bowling, Sofia is going to visit Winter Wonderland in Brent Cross and the Harry Potter studios in Watford with family and friends.
