Double Rainbows Show Up In Time For Ireland's Gay Marriage Vote

Nothing like a little rainbow power to boost an historic vote on same-sex marriage.

As Ireland headed to the polls to vote on legalizing gay marriage, Mother Nature seemed to acknowledge the importance of the occasion with a number of rainbows - some of them double rainbows - that were captured by Twitter users in the days leading up to Friday's vote.

Single rainbows didn't shy away, either.

Must've been a good sign from the skies, because the country voted 62.1 per cent in favour of amending marriage laws to include same-sex unions. Double rainbow = original Pride flag?
