SHE may be too young to understand the significance of the date, but little Lucia Cunliffe’s first birthday today will be extra special.
Lucia’s anniversary falls on 12/12/12, a once in a century occurrence, and she is going to celebrate in style with a tea party at her home in Alder Grove, Layton – hosted by 21-year-old parents Louise Skelly and Lewis Cunliffe.
Louise said: “When she was born on the twelfth of the twelfth last year people were saying wouldn’t it be weird if she was born a year later.
“She probably won’t have a clue but hopefully she’ll have an idea it’s something a bit different.
“We’re just having a tea party with her and a few of her little friends.
“We’ve got a few different presents for her, her grandad and dad have bought her loads of stuff, but you can’t really buy that much for someone that young.”
Lucia is the niece of top resort singer-songwriter Karima Francis, so a fantastic rendition of Happy Birthday should also be on the cards!
