Worldwide ‘palindrome day’, and last you will experience

It is a bit of a historic day. It is namely 2 February 2020, or 02/02/2020, a date that looks precisely the same in reverse. Such dates are called ‘palindrome days’. And it is an extra unique and rare mirror word day.

A palindrome, also called a mirror word, is a word that looks the other way around. Some examples of puns are ‘spoon’, ‘nine’, ‘dead’, ‘jaw’. A palindrome day is a date that looks the same in reverse, such as today: 02/02/2020.

Extra special

This date is extra special because it works worldwide. In the US, for example, they write the month before the day, but they also have a palindrome day there today: 02/02/2020.

Today is worldwide ‘palindrome day’, and last you will experience

The previous global palindrome day was 909 years ago (11/11/1111) and will not happen again in 101 years: on 12/12/2121. After that, we have to wait no less than 1,010 years until 03/03/3030. And then another 1,010 years, until 04/04/4040.

What makes this day so beautiful is that it is the 33rd day of the year, which this year will be followed by another 333 days.
