People all over the world are commemorating this unique date in special ways. My father, one never late to a party, has also decided to take part and make 11-11-11 memorable. He logged onto Facebook at sunrise and switched his birthday from November 12th to November 11th. He sent out a mass email with an explanation behind the change.
Subject: urodziny (That's "birthday" in Polish)
Date: Fri, Nov 11, 2011 at 8:29 AM
Flagged: Important mainly because of the people in the conversation.
From 2011 and on - my birthday will be celebrated on November 11. It's Polish Independence Day also. I was born on November 12th, 1949 at 2am in Poland but in the United States it was still November 11th, 1949. That means I was really born on November 11th in USA time. REMEMBER THIS!!!!!!! OKAY????
Happy new time zone birthday, Dziadek. You keep the family on their toes every single day no matter what time zone or country we happen to be in. Sto Lat!

My father uploaded a new photo on Facebook this evening to thank everyone for remembering his birthday.
"Thank you sooooo much everyone, for remember my Birthday 11-11-11. I am start new life, as show on picture."
Someone remind to spread my birthday celebration along two time zones because Dziadek has clearly started a trend and is milking it. Am I supposed to wish him Sto Lat tomorrow too? My Polish-American family confuses me.
