Why does the clock on my Macintosh reset to 1969?

Macintosh timekeeping: In some occasions, Mac clocks will get reset to some date in 1969 (usually December). Regardless of the reason for this (bad CMOS battery, or jumper resets, or whatever), I just want to know: Why that date? I've Googled with lots of different possible search phrases and found nothing. I assume it's something important to somebody at Apple...?
