Whats known for being grouped into twelve?Exclus96 - 10 Answers
Twelve is an important number for many reasons, one of which is that it is divisible by 1,2,3,4,6. It is also historically important.
There are 12 in a dozen, and many things, like baked goods, eggs are typically sold that way.
Early computers were hardwired to use base 12, and the software went along with that. That is the hexadecimal system.
There are twelve hours in the day and twelve in the night. Sundials are based on the daylight hours. There are 12 time zones from Greenwich to the International date line, and another 12 continuing back.
There are 12 days of Christmas.
Months of the year are grouped in dozens. There are a dozen cycles of the moon in a year, so 12 may be one of the earliest number groupings.
There are also the 12 days of Christmas and various grocery items you can buy, such as rolls, bottles of water, eggs, bagels, donuts, etc.
Another thing you can buy by the dozen is a bouquet of roses.

12 Chinese Zodiac designations.
12 Olympic gods
12 OPEC nations
The thing that I think of when considering twelve are eggs. A dozen eggs will probably be mentioned by a lot of people but it just seems to click.
I'm sure there are other possibilities but nothing else comes to mind.
Thanks for asking.
We usually can buy eggs by the dozen. Also, from the bakery shop, we can buy cookies, doughnuts and muffins by the dozen. Whatever you buy, don't forget the ROSES--on dozen, long-stemmed, in pink, thank you....
