Today is 11.11.11
Whether you are observing Veteran's Day, Armistice Day, Nigel Tufnel day or the just plain palindromic perfection of 11.11.11 today (perhaps at 11am), there's a little something for you somewhere—perhaps involving a discounted mattress set or a Masonic ritual. I'll add more 11.11 stuff as it comes in. Feel free to add your own in the comments below.
