Palindrome Day

Today is Palindrome Day!

Category: News




Because in month-day-year (MM-DD-YYYY) format, the date reads 01-02-2010. That’s a numerical version of a palindrome!

What’s a palindrome by the way?

It is a word, phrase, number or other sequence of units that can be read the same way in either direction (backward or forward). The most famous would probably be “Madam, I’m Adam.”

Before today, the last palindromic date happened on October 2, 2001 (10-02-2001) and the next occurrence will be on November 2, 2011 or 11-02-2011.

Interestingly enough, yesterday was a binary day as the date: January 1, 2010 when translated into binary code is 010110.

I wonder what trivia lovers can contrive for tomorrow’s date. :-)
