A Stitch in Time Saves Nine

September 9, 2015

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and did you notice that today is 9/09? And this morning at 9:09 AM and tonight at 9:09 PM it will be 9:09 on 9/09. Then I started thinking about the number nine and the different cool facts about it. So here are nine fun facts about the number nine!

  • There are nine judges on the United States Supreme Court.
  • A cat has nine lives. (Fishy Kitty told me that one.)
  • In French, the word for nine and new are both neuf.
  • There are nine months in a school year.
  • Beethoven wrote nine symphonies.
  • The expression “to the nines” means to the highest amount, extreme, and degree.
  • If you’re on “cloud nine,” that means that you’re very happy.
  • There are nine innings in a baseball game.
  • If you multiply nine by any whole number, the answer’s digits add up to nine. For example, 9 X 2 = 18 and 1 + 8 = 9!

What others nines comes to mind? Be sure to write your ideas on our blog! And don’t forget…have a critterrific day!
