Millennium baby Maxwell Lister turned 12 yesterday and had a birthday of great numerical significance.
Max was born just before midday on the December, 12 2000, meaning that yesterday he turned twelve on December, 12 2012.
And the youngster, who lives in Kendal Drive, Flitwick marked his birthday, by attending football training with his team Bow Brickhill Rangers in Milton Keynes.
He said: “I’m not really sure how to feel about it but people at school have been saying how spooky it is.
“I haven’t really done much today, but we are having a celebration over the weekend.”
He added: “12 isn’t even my lucky number, that’s seven.”
Max’s birthday is so significant because there want be another year ending in 12 for another century, and children who are celebrating turning 12 today are extra special.
His mum Charlotte said: “After he was born we didn’t really think about the date. It was only when we registered his birth a few days later that we realised he would be 12 on December 12 2012.”
