Top definition
A general theme or specific knowledge that, over a period of time, ranging from weeks to months, or even years, will repeat from groups of people with no knowledge of the general theme or specific knowledge's occurrence. This event is not a coincidence, and is caused by extreme luck. As Ian Fleming once said, "Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times, it's enemy action."
