Happy Palindrome Day!!
February 2, 2020
Today is February 2, 2020, which makes the date, when formatted as 02022020, a palindrome. So happy Palindrome Day!
A palindrome is a character pattern that reads the same forward or backward. Since I learned about them as a kid, I’ve always thought palindromes to be interesting. Whenever I come across a set of repeating letters or numbers, I tend to check and see if it’s a palindrome; a simple game I will probably play for the rest of my life. Whenever I confirm the pattern reads the same both ways, it’s a little win for the day. I love it.
After a quick search for any fun information about today, I found this interesting article on CNN: Today is 02/02/2020 -- the first global palindrome day in 909 years
The previous palindrome date in all formats came 909 years ago on 11/11/1111. The next will come in 101 years on 12/12/2121 and after that, there will not be another until 03/03/3030.
