Twelve it seems is a special number, not only are all but three numbers lower than it whole fractions of it, lots of things come in it.

The twelve days of Christmas
The twelve months of the year
The twelve disciples
Not to mention a dozen eggs, but why stop there, what do you think ought to come in twelve’s? My contribution
