Aaron Rodgers Day: Share Your No. 12 Photos Here!

Are you celebrating Wisconsin's special 12-12-12? Share what you like best about the Green Bay Packers quarterback here – or tell us why you can't stand him!

I personally think 12-12-12 should be a national holiday, but with our president being a Bears fan and all … it’s not going to happen.

It’s Aaron Rodgers day. A day for Green Bay Packers fans to celebrate the success of the team under the leadership of No. 12.

Let’s just face it, it’s a day for us to wear our green and gold jerseys, to paint our fingernails green (am I right, ladies?) and to just get darn excited that we are Packers fans from Wisconsin.

Aaron Rodgers day started as a Facebook joke that became viral. The state legislature officially declared Dec. 12, 2012, to be his day.

Milwaukee County workers are being allowed to wear Packers jerseys or shirts to work on Wednesday. Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele is encouraging employees to donate $12 to the MACC Fund a childhood cancer research fund for which Rodgers has helped raise almost $750,000

“There is no better way to celebrate the Packers and Aaron Rodgers than by showing our pride,” Abele said in a news release. “Like Aaron Rodgers, I’m a strong supporter of the MACC Fund, and this is a good chance to have fun while raising money for an important cause.”

A Waukesha salon is also chipping in with donations going toward the MACC fund. Salon Brillare', 1830 Meadow Lane, will offer $12 haircuts and manicures, free Parrafin wax treatments and light refreshments during its tailgate party. They are asking customers taking advantage of the $12 special to chip in a donation to the childhood cancer research fund.

Rodgers Encounters

I’ve met Rodgers once outside of Lambeau Field after a football game. I got my cheesehead signed, and I didn’t wash my hand for 24 hours. He was a really nice guy, so these rumors about Rodgers being engaged make me more than a little disappointed. Come on, I wanted a chance!

But have you had any Aaron Rodgers encounters? Perhaps at the Brookfield restaurant he part-owns with Brewers slugger Ryan Braun? Why do you like him? And who do you think is better, Rodgers or Brett Favre? Tell us in the comments and add your jersey pictures here.

Aaron Rodgers is a class act..on AND off the football field. He is a genuine, good person. Check out his work with the MACC Fund, and the kids with cancer at itsaaron.com . Doesnt seem arrogant and self absorbed to me... I have no affiliation with him or the MACC fund, but was very touched by his work with these kids. Dont judge a book by his NFL stats....

Seems like Sophie has our beloved Aaron Rodgers mixed up with Jay Cutler.

She's only 12 years old?

That's cool that one person can have so much influence in a state that he gets a day to call his own.
