As our 12th-anniversary sale advances, let’s dive into the fascinating world of the number 12. From ancient traditions to modern science, this number 12 holds a special place across various cultures and disciplines.

So, here are 12 cool facts about the number 12 that you should know!

  1. A Dozen Makes a Perfect Set

The number 12 is often associated with completeness and wholeness. So, this is why we have a dozen eggs, a dozen months in a year, and even a dozen signs of the zodiac. It signifies a complete cycle, thus making it the perfect symbol for Konga’s 12th-anniversary milestone.

  1. Mathematical Marvel

Twelve is a highly composite number, meaning it has more divisors than any smaller number. And so it can be divided by 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12; this makes it incredibly useful in calculations and measurements.

  1. The Zodiac Connection

There are 12 signs in the zodiac, each representing a segment of the sky. These signs are used in astrology to predict personalities and fortunes, showing how the number 12 has a mystical and cosmic significance.

  1. Timekeeper

Our clocks are divided into two sets of 12 hours. This system, known as the 12-hour clock, is a direct legacy from ancient Egypt, which first divided the day using the number 12.

  1. Mythological Significance

In Greek mythology, 12 Olympian gods resided on Mount Olympus. These deities played a crucial role in Greek stories and beliefs, highlighting the importance of the number 12 in ancient narratives.

  1. The Jury System

In many legal systems worldwide, a jury is typically composed of 12 people. This tradition stems from English common law, where a group of 12 jurors would deliberate and provide a verdict.

  1. Olympic Tradition

The number 12 also has a place in sports history. In 1896, the first modern Olympic Games had 12 participating countries, laying the foundation for one of the biggest sporting events in the world.

  1. Musical Harmony

In Western music, an octave has 12 notes. These include the seven natural notes and five sharps/flats, which form the foundation of musical scales and harmony.

  1. Lunar Influence

The lunar year consists of 12 moon cycles or months. Various cultures throughout history have used this lunar calendar to track time and agricultural cycles.
