Global Palindrome Date
Hey guys – Happy weekend!
Did you know that this Sunday is a palindrome date? In fact, it’s the first global palindrome day in over 900 years! The last one was 11/11/1111. And it won’t happen again for over 100 years! It will be 12/12/2121
But, back up, you might say… What exactly is a palindrome? A palindrome is a word, phrase, or sequence that reads the same forward and backward.
And what makes today a global palindrome day? Well, we in the USA use the MM/DD/YYYY date format, but most other countries across the globe use DD/MM/YYYYY format. Any way you write it, today is palindromic!
As a number nerd, I get excited about stuff like this. 🙂
Beyond that, it is also Super Bowl Sunday and Groundhog Day! So, it is indeed a day worth celebrating!
