Happy Palindrome Day!

Happy Palindrome Day! A palindrome is when you read today’s date the same forward and backwards. Today is 02.02.2020. And no matter how you write today’s date, it’s going to be a palindrome…

For the first time in over 900 years, we have a very rare eight digit palindrome day! The last time this happened was 11.11.1111. An eight-digit ubiquitous palindrome date will happen only 11 times in the years between 1000 and 9999: (01.01.1010 – 1010 years ago, 11.11.11 – 909 years ago, 02.02.2020 – well, today, and 12.12.2121 – in 101 years.)

Whoa! It’s crazy that this is the first global palindrome day in 909 years, and that the next one won’t happen for another 101 years.

If that wasn’t enough for us nerds, it’s also the 33rd day of 2020 with 333 days to go.
