Have you ever heard of a golden birthday?
It's when your age matches your birth date, like turning 9 on the 9th of the month or 17 on the 17th.
Since today's date is 12-12-12, we met up with a Hasty girl who's celebrating an extra golden birthday.
"I'm going to be 12 on December 12," said Chylyn Fulton.
That's right, Chylyn Fulton 12th birthday this year falls on 12-12-12, and she only has one word for it.
"I was kind of shocked," said Fulton.
Chylyn's just your everyday, fun-loving kid dealing with the same issues as other kids.
"Math and science in the mornings, math and science in the afternoons, and reading and writing," said Fulton.
At the hearty age of 12, she already has a favorite.
"Band because we get to learn new fingerings and learn new songs."
Her unusual birthday isn't the only number 12 in Chylyn's life.
"I'm the 12th grandchild" said Fulton.
Her first and last name: 12 letters.
Her phone number adds up to 24 and her mother is 36, both multiples of 12.
So turning 12 on 12-12-12 may make her one in a million, but all of the other coincidences could mean she's one in billions.
Still, Chylyn doesn't think of it that way.
She just focuses on showing goats and riding horses in 4-H.
"Because you can try your hardest, try to get ribbons."
She should probably get a ribbon for her extra golden birthday.
Chylyn's mother says none of this was planned.
They didn't even realize any of this until this year.
Happy birthday to Chylyn!
