Make the most of this special day! Make the most of this special day!

Today is a once in a lifetime day – do something special

By  Feb 02, 2020

Do you know what makes this day unique, 02.02.2020? This is a so-called, palindromic date, in which the date, month and year are read equally back and forth.

It is interesting to note that this will be the only palindrome date until the end of this century.

Palindromic dates on the calendar are a rare occurrence indeed. One of the more unusual, for example, was recorded 909 years ago, 11.11.1111.

The next calendar 'phenomenon' will follow on 12.12.2121, and will be greeted by only a rare few of our contemporaries, today's babies, who will be 100 years old at the time.

The chances are fairly high that none of the Earth's current inhabitants will be see the third conspicuous 'palindrome' because it is scheduled on 03.03.3030.
